To ask the Scottish Government by what date it will develop prevention pathways for people deemed particularly vulnerable to homelessness, including those experiencing domestic violence and care leavers.
Answered by: Kevin Stewart 27 February 2019
As indicated in our Ending Homelessness Together Action Plan, published on 27 November 2018, during 2019 we are committed to reviewing the evidence and identifying the timetable and process for the design and implementation of preventative pathways for each group at high risk of homelessness, including those who have experienced domestic violence and people with experience of the care system or on leaving the care system. Through 2020-23, pathways will be developed and implemented with consideration of the groups at highest risk of rough sleeping and the highest proportion of people who become homeless. We will target our efforts in accordance with evidence, seeking to develop and share good practice that already exists.
