Case study – The impact of affordable homes

Anika lived in social housing in Glasgow with her husband. She has 2 children and needed to leave her relationship due to domestic abuse. She was not confident in her decision, with many psychological reasons but one of the main barriers being the housing options available to her. She was keen to stay close to the school her children had attended but could not find anything suitable. Anika had been involved in voluntary work supporting new Refugees from Ukraine and through this work had established a relationship with Homes for Good (HFG).

An upper cottage flat became empty after the elderly owner passed away and was referred to HFG by Glasgow City Council EHO. The family who inherited it recognised the level of work involved and were keen to get a quick settlement once the estate had been settled. HFG carried out extensive renovations and this is now home to Anika and her family.
