The end of January saw the publication of the bi-annual homelessness statistics from the Scottish Government. These show that in the six months between 1 April and 30 September 2018, local authorities received 18,486 homelessness applications, an increase of 284 (2%) over the same period in the previous year.

During the whole year (Sep 2017 – Sep 2018), there were 35,838 applications.
“These figures are bad news for anyone facing homelessness in Scotland and if alarm bells weren’t already ringing in Holyrood, they should be now,” said Director of Shelter Scotland, Graeme Brown.
