Hello Homeless Action Scotland, Goodbye SCSH
From the beginning of April the Scottish Council for Single Homeless became Homeless Action Scotland. Since 1974 SCSH has fought hard for the needs of single homeless people to be given the same priority as homeless families.
Just short of our 40th birthday, the abolition of 'priority need' at the end of 2012 saw the end of the need in Scotland to distinguish between single homeless people and others. It signalled the beginning of the new exciting phase of action to prevent and alleviate homelessness in Scotland.
Our strategy builds on three key themes: sustainability, security and age.
Homeless Action Scotland CEO Robert Aldridge said "The building blocks for homelessness are in place. Now is time to build the momentum, to work together on better practices and ensure that the excellent progress made to date is further developed to end preventable homelessness in Scotland."
