Transform Community Development are proud and active member of the Everyone Home Collective. The collective came together at the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic in spring 2020 and represent a collective of nearly 40 third and academic sector organisations with a strong focus on housing and homelessness in Scotland.

we continue to collaborate and meet regularly to respond to the range of crises that continue to impact heavily on housing and homelessness including the cost of living crisis, international conflict, UK immigration policy and the pace of Scotland’s affordable housing programme.

As a collective we have congratulated Scotland’s new First Minister and urged his attention on repairing the social housing budget and on protecting duties to prevent homelessness.

Thirty-five organisations have written an open letter to First Minister John Swinney MSP in this 25th year of the Scottish Parliament. The Everyone Home Collective has highlighted that over the last 25 years Scottish administrations have made giant leaps towards ending homelessness and have created world-class legislation. That when progress stalled, the Scottish Government recalibrated to get us back on track. And when the pandemic threatened to cause a homelessness catastrophe, the Scottish Government took decisive action.

But now we find ourselves going backwards again – and so this must be a moment to reset. The letter can be found here https://homelessnetwork.scot/w...
