Ending Homelessness: The report on the final recommendations of the Homelessness and Rough Sleeping Action Group

This report from the Scottish Government identifies ways to end homeslessness and rough sleeping, focusing on 29 recommendations from the Homelessness and Rough Sleeping Action Group (HRSAG).

Also referenced are three over reports which aimed to:

  1. address the pressing need to reduce rough sleeping in winter of 2017/18;
  2. look at the solutions to rough sleeping in Scotland; and
  3. transforming the use of temporary accommodation in Scotland.

As mentioned in the document, this report does not provide a 'silver bullet' to end homeslessness but rather aims to support the Scottish Government in its attempt. Alongside this report, the Scottish Government has announced (as of 27th June 2018) a £21m investment to support people who are living in temporary accommodation or at risk of homelessness to a quick move into a permanent home.
