Housing Options Scotland has joined the Everyone Home, making 36 organisations in the collective. In 2022 Housing Options Scotland is celebrating 25 years of providing housing information, support and advice across Scotland. Moira Bayne, CEO of Housing Option Scotland, said: “We are delighted to join the Everyone Home collective alongside many other brilliant organisations all working to end homelessness in Scotland.”
Through their Homeless Housing Options service the team have supported more than 150 clients who are homeless, or at risk of homelessness, with advice. The vast majority make up the hidden homeless population in Scotland – not roofless but trapped in inaccessible housing or sofa surfing with friends and family. Housing Options Scotland aims to work with partners in the sector to share the perspectives of their clients and work collaboratively to find solutions for them.
Moira added: “We hope that by joining this broad-reaching coalition, together, we will be able to make inroads in ending all forms of homelessness in Scotland, for all different people.”
Moira Bayne has been CEO at Housing Options Scotland since 2008 and sits on the board of Homeless Network Scotland and Abbeyfield Scotland. Previously, she has been a board member with Veterans Scotland and ACOSVO. For more information about the range of people supported by Housing Options Scotland please visit their website here.
