It won't take long, and you will be able to join the community, post your responses and comment on the responses of others, and discuss the Charter with Scottish Government officials, tenant representatives, housing professionals, and others with an interest in social housing.
After you post your message, other people can join the conversation by commenting on your post, and can click on the 'I like this response' button to support it.
Try not to make your response too long. People are more likely to read and comment on shorter, to-the-point responses. We don't edit responses, so your suggestion will appear as you write it.
Please treat other posters with respect and do not use bad language. Disagreement is part of conversation, of course, but others are entitled to voice their opinion without abuse. You may want to read our moderation guidelines before posting.
We hope you won't have any trouble registering or logging-in. If you do have any difficulty, please let us know, and we will do our best to fix things as soon as we can.

One of the major causes of homelessness is mental health problems / disabilities and yet there is no mention of mental health in the draft document. Mental health championing is very much in its infants and falls way behind Learning Disabilities and yet Scotland is very much into following and encouraging people with mental health disabilities into "Recovery".
There is no denying that mental health is still heavily stigmatised and people with mental health disabilities also need help to be included if stigmatising and exclusion are to be ended.
Is there any outcomes in the charter that focus on Homeless Prevention? This is different from tenancy sustainment in the sense that prevention work may be done to stop a young person leaving home etc. At present, we aim for our prevention officer to contact every client who is referred to our homeless service in the first instance.
