Shelter Scotland The People v Glasgow City Council

Help fund our fight for housing rights in Glasgow and across Scotland!

We’re always ready to go to court to protect homeless people’s rights. Here’s why we’re asking you to fund our fight with a donation today… 
 
Every Council has a legal duty to find housing for every homeless person. 
 
But on 3,365 occasions last year, Glasgow City Council failed to do this. During this time, 47 homeless people died whilst homeless in Glasgow.
 
Denying homeless people the right to temporary housing when they need it most is wrong. It’s shocking. And it’s breaking the law.  
 
We’re not going to stand for it. That’s why, after years of talking and trying to change attitudes, we’re ready to fight for justice in court. Because housing is a right, not a privilege. 
 
But we’re not going alone.  
 
We’re building a movement of people from this amazing city who’ll support us. And we’re giving homeless people a voice. 
 
Join The People v Glasgow City Council today. 
 
Stand up for justice with Shelter Scotland. Your donation might not just fund this case, but will help us protect homeless people’s rights all across Scotland.
