Help for Glasgow's Rough Sleepers

Published 25/3/20

Hotel rooms have been provided for rough sleepers in Glasgow amid the Corona Virus crisis.

Additional funding from the Scottish Government has enabled the city's Health & Social Care Partnership to source extra accommodation.

Cllr Mhairi Hunter, Glasgow's City Convener for Health and Social Care, said: "Over the past fortnight, Glasgow's Health & Social Care Partnership have been focused on securing additional emergency accommodation for those who require it. This has included several hotels in the city and ensures that all of those whom we have a responsibility to assist, can self-isolate where necessary in accordance with the official Covid-19 guidance.

"Additional funding was provided by the Scottish Government to offer accommodation to rough sleepers whom our Street Team liaise with daily. We commission Simon Community Scotland to provide the Street Team and have worked in partnership with them to address this issue.

"I'd personally like to thank all frontline HSCP staff who are working hard during this unprecedented emergency to support the city's most vulnerable residents, both young and old."
