New LGBTQ+ Housing Support Hub by Shelter Scotland

Shelter Scotland has taken a significant step towards inclusivity and support by launching a comprehensive online hub specially designed for LGBTQ+ individuals. The housing and homelessness charity has recognised the unique challenges faced by the LGBTQ+ community and has curated a set of resources to address their specific needs.

The newly introduced pages serve as a guiding light for LGBTQ+ people navigating homelessness services. Additionally, these online resources direct individuals to other organisations capable of offering tailored support to the LGBTQ+ community.

Moreover, the platform provides invaluable advice for those in search of LGBTQ+ friendly housing. This initiative by Shelter Scotland aims to bridge the gap and combat the discrimination often faced by LGBTQ+ individuals in their quest for a safe and secure home.

Expressing the urgent need for intervention, Shelter Scotland director, Alison Watson, emphasised the severity of the housing crisis gripping the lives of LGBTQ+ people in Scotland. She stated, “The housing emergency isn’t just causing devastation; it’s also magnifying the existing bias within Scotland’s housing system.”

Watson continued, “LGBTQ+ individuals frequently encounter prejudice while trying to find accommodation and are all too frequently caught in the crossfire of the housing crisis.”

She further explained the motive behind the launch of these dedicated pages, saying, “Our goal is to furnish individuals with useful insights on discovering LGBTQ+ friendly housing in Scotland and equip those at risk of homelessness within the LGBTQ+ community with the necessary resources to uphold their housing rights.”

Undoubtedly, the creation of this LGBTQ+ housing support hub signifies a crucial turning point in the efforts towards fostering a more inclusive and supportive housing environment for LGBTQ+ individuals across Scotland.
