March 19 2020

A quick update of key services that are continuing to provide support in Scotland during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

In response to the outbreak of Covid-19 the Pavement has created a Health & Wellbeing In A Crisis booklet. If you want free copies email nicola@thepavement.org.uk 

As many of you will be aware, the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak has caused a number of vital homelessness services to shut across the UK. We will update this post to keep the information current.

If you know of any changes or would like to add your service, please contact us at scotland@thepavement.org.uk

We recommend referring to Housing Justice for important updates about plans to help housing and homelessness services:
