Kevin Stewart MSP launches consultation on local connection


The Scottish government recognises that everyone should have a secure warm place to call home – citing this as one of the most important factors in any person’s quality of life. Their Ending Homelessness Together Action Plan sets the direction and as part of this, they have just launched a consultation on the current local connection and intentionality provisions in the Homelessness etc. (Scotland) Act 2003. The Government wants to hear your views on these issues to break down any barriers that stop people from accessing the accommodation and support they need, when and where it’s needed.
