We’re pleased to receive funding from the Scottish Government to deliver a specialist service for people at risk of eviction and destitution in Glasgow.
Over the next six months we will work with partners in the legal sector and other charities to provide advocacy and legal support and to make sure people’s dignity and rights are respected at all times.
Our Head of Services, Wafa Shaheen:
“This funding means we’ll be able to provide a lifeline service to people at a very difficult time in their lives.
“Along with our partners in the Stop Lock Change Evictions coalition we’ll continue to provide expert legal advice and holistic support to people experiencing real hardship here in Glasgow.
“Over the last six months the coalition has managed to halt 150 evictions. We’ve helped more than thirty people receive the asylum support they were entitled to, and supported ten people at risk of eviction to successfully apply for refugee status.
“This funding will allow us to build on this work and make sure people at risk of eviction know their rights and are able to make informed decisions about their future.”
