The Scottish Churches Housing Action has emailed all 129 MSPs who were recently elected
to the Scottish Parliament. As well as congratulating them on their (re)election and
introducing them to the work of Scottish Churches Housing Action, we outlined our five
main recommendations for policymakers to take on board over this parliamentary term.
You can add your support to this by emailing your MSP encouraging them to make
homelessness a priority and create long lasting change and drawing to their attention
SCHA’s recommendations. Find out more by clicking the button below.
