Shelter Scotland show PRS not THE cause of homelessnessMake Text Bigger
The latest homeless statistics from Shelter Scotland have been released. Click here to view the full report.
Some particular points I noticed were:
1. Homeless applications have increased for the first time in 9 years. Could this be related to the introduction of lifetime tenancies?
2. Only 11% of homeless applications were the result of landlord action. 52% were due to relationship breakdown and “other causes”.
3. “Where do people live before becoming homeless”. 18% private rented sector. 14% social housing. 42% with family.
