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.
