Providing Homes, Helping Recovery

The need for councils to provide empty homes services is vital not just to tackle the number of homes becoming, and remaining, long term empty as a result of the pandemic, but also to assist local authorities in revitalising local economies and delivering their wider post-Covid recovery plans.

Housing Minister Kevin Stewart has noted that “The skills and expertise of empty homes officers will be invaluable in helping us face this unprecedented challenge”.

Providing Homes, Helping Recovery is a new paper from the Scottish Empty Homes Partnership that sets out the contribution that empty homes and empty homes officers can make to help to meet this challenge.
