Housing First Scotland

Housing First is normal, it’s fairer, it works – and we all benefit

Housing First Scotland belongs to everyone who is helping Housing First become the first response for people whose homelessness is made harder by experiences such as trauma, addictions and mental health problems.

Branching Out is the National Framework For Housing First in Scotland. It provides a ‘how to and why’ guide for all sectors planning, commissioning and delivering Housing First.
