UNISON Young Members Housing Guide 2014-15

YoungMembersHousingGuide_Feb2014-thumbnailWhether it’s renting social housing, becoming a private tenant or buying your own home, entering the housing market for the first time can be daunting.

That is why the UNISON Young Members in Scotland support have produced Young Members Housing Guide 2014/15.

It gives a simplified overview of your rights and responsibilities, as well as schemes out there aimed at helping young people get started on the property ladder.

Scotland is currently facing a housing crisis. The lack of social housing in particular is impacting heavily on young people who are either forced to stay with parents, are struggling to afford rented accommodation and save enough money to be able to buy their own home.

We believe everyone should have a home and shouldn’t be struggling to afford a place to call their own.
