Local government Scotland: Toolkit on ensuring justice for homeless people

Guidance for councils from the Local Government Ombudsman on how to ensure they respond appropriately to people who are unintentionally homeless and in priority need, despite cuts to funding and increased pressure on resources. The report outlines the rights of homeless people with regard to the provision of housing. It notes four areas in which councils can cause injustice to homeless people: homelessness prevention; the duty to make enquiries; making applications; and the provision of interim accommodation, and provides good practice advice in relation to each of these areas.

Contacted by city of Almada, Portugal
