Welcome title

We bring together the main Churches in their work to eliminate homelessness in Scotland. We connect the Churches with a major social problem, which affects some 80,000 people in Scotland each year. We link local problems of homelessness with national means of tackling them.

Homelessness in Scotland:
the challenges of uncertainty

Rt Rev Dr Russell Barr, Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland, spoke at Scottish Churches Housing Action's event on Friday 7 October. Read our report on the day here.

"At the moment the best we are doing is managing homelessness...without a collective endeavour by central and local government working with the voluntary sector, I see little hope of us ending it.”

This was Russell's key message, as he called on the Scottish Government to oversee a 'collective endeavour' to tackle homelessness by involving organisations at all levels.
