Discussion paper: RSLs and homelessness in Scotland
Over the last 10 years the role of Registered Social Landlords (RSLs) in Scottish social housing has increased dramatically. This report looks at four main areas of the sector’s work with homeless people: housing homeless households; preventing homelessness and sustaining tenancies; providing supported accommodation; and RSLs’ engagement in strategy development.
The report looks specifically at the experience of a small number of RSLs, which we contacted directly, as well as other more general evidence about the sector. This report gives a snapshot of work by RSLs, but given the small sample of organisations this is not necessarily typical of the sector as a whole.
