It’s time to turn the pressure up: Tell your MSPs that social housing is important to voters

Homelessness is rising. There are record numbers of households in temporary accommodation this winter. More and more people are battling to keep a roof over their heads. 

Our politicians must act now. Shelter Scotland research shows that to stop things getting worse, Scotland needs to build 37,100 social homes over the next five years. We want all political parties to commit to this target ahead of the Scottish elections next May. 

Over 18,000 of you have already signed our petition calling for these homes to be built. Now let’s step it up. 

By writing to your MSPs – you're letting them know that social housing matters to voters and you're helping to deliver the homes Scotland needs. 

Click to start our easy letter template.  Thank you for stepping up and making your voice heard. 

P.S. If you'd like tips on writing your own letter, how to influence local decision makers or how you can defend housing rights, you can find guides and resources here.
