Homeless Network Scotland Conference 05/10/21 – Theme 1: Housing Choice

£0.00£70.00

Rapid Rehousing means to reduce time in temporary and ‘homeless’ places in favour of mainstream housing in ordinary settings. This is the transition in strategy and supply that is now underway in Scotland. It also needs a shift in how homelessness is widely understood; a symptom of social and economic inequality that needs redressed, not personal mistakes or differences that need a specific ‘homeless’ living arrangement. An awareness too that this includes some people who don’t think they deserve an ordinary home of their own. However, some of us, much smaller in number, don’t want mainstream housing, have no rights to it, or need longer-term care. So what is the role of supported or shared housing in this case? How much do we need, what are the features of it – and who pays for it?
