The Homelessness Monitor 2015: Scotland

Suzanne Fitzpatrick, Hal Pawson, Glen Bramley, Steve Wilcox and Beth Watts

The homelessness monitor is a five year (2011-2016) study co-funded by Crisis and JRF that provides an independent analysis of the impact on homelessness of recent economic and policy developments across in the UK; this report focuses on Scotland.

The report reveals that, while there have been 5% fewer assessments made since last year, homeless people are being forced to spend more and more time in temporary housing due to pressure on the supply of affordable homes, rising demand and cuts to benefits.

You can read the report on the Crisis website.
