Scottish Social Housing Charter

Scottish Social Housing Charter & Performance

The Scottish Government’s Scottish Social Housing Charter sets out standards and outcomes that social landlords should achieve.

The Charter says that homeless people:

  • should get prompt and easy access to help and advice
  • are provided with suitable, good quality temporary or emergency accommodation when it is needed
  • are offered continuing support to help them get and keep the home they are entitled to

We  must report on our Charter performance by providing an Annual Return on the Charter (ARC) to the Scottish Housing Regulator every year.

The Scottish Housing Regulator publishes an Engagement Plan for every Council and every Council must make its Engagement Plan easily available and accessible to its tenants and service users.

How can I find out more?

The Scottish Government publishes statistical homeless data here.

You can get a copy of the Scottish Social Housing Charter by visiting the Scottish Government website.

The Scottish Housing Regulator’s website also has lots more information about the Charter and about landlord performance.
