The Practitioners’ Guide to Housing Refugees

This guide is for housing professionals, frontline and management staff working with Local Authorities (LAs), Registered Social Landlords (RSLs), and voluntary organisations in Scotland.

It provides essential information about housing and homelessness rights and entitlements for refugees. It also provides practical recommendations and examples of positive practice, which aim to reduce homelessness and improve tenancy sustainment amongst refugees. 

Information is provided in six chapters, organised by topic. The electronic version provides working links within the document and to other useful websites.

When you select the link below to download the guide, you will need to complete a short form with your details. This allows us to provide information updates for the guide directly to you.
