Homelessness need not be endemic

The Church of Scotland has issued a fresh call for collective action to end the “scandal of homelessness”.

Rev Dr Richard Frazer, convener of the Church and Society Council, said there was a “mountain to climb” but insisted the situation “need not be endemic”.

He spoke out after a new report published today said homelessness in Scotland is predicted to rise by more than 53% in the next 25 years.
