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.

Scottish Churches Housing Action promotes Homeless Sunday in Scotland, in partnership with Housing Justice, which covers England and Wales.
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.
