Simon Community Scotland is working to combat the causes and effects of homelessness. Our vision is that everyone should have a safe place to live and access to the support they need. By working and learning together we can drive impact and change, person to person – to transform everyone’s experience of homelessness in Scotland.
When we talk about transformation – Housing First has been a game changer for many people, providing a home for people to resolve the issues that led to them becoming homeless in the first place. From 1st October we will be the sole provider of Housing First in Edinburgh, our ambition is for the Housing First principles to be applied across all provision and be fully integrated across the city and across Scotland and we are determined to lead and work with others to make this happen.
