Glasgow housing emergency

1 December 2023
On 30th November 2023, Glasgow declared a housing emergency.

“Simon Community Scotland supports the framing of a housing emergency in Glasgow and would go further. It is an emergency for every one of the people affected, particularly the people we support who find themselves pushed into the most extreme circumstances by a failing system.  Our Teams are alongside those most affected, they’re seeing the harms, trauma and further loss. It is getting harder to find solutions, but we know what is needed, we know what works and we need to make it easier for our teams to deliver those solutions for every single family and person.”
