Funding boost

May 25th 2009
Twenty-nine projects will receive £2.4 million from the Scottish Government to help tackle homelessness and provide debt advice. The Housing Voluntary Sector Grants Scheme provides funding for projects relating to homelessness, including repossession and debt advice. Steeling themselves for an increase in demand for their services in the current financial climate, Shelter Scotland will receive £231,108 to develop its housing law service, a 50 per cent increase on their allocation from last year. Borderline (a long-term stockist of the London edition), which supports and advises homeless Scots in London, gets £107,100. Based in Victoria near the coach station, the route many Scots take to London, Borderline's team of five staff offers a range of services including information, advice and advocacy. Scottish Women's Aid, meanwhile, will receive £107,100 to provide advice and support to women who are homeless having suffered domestic abuse. Alison Watson, Head of Services, Shelter Scotland, says: "This additional funding will enable us to respond to the very real problems people are facing."
