Intentionality and local connection changes to go ahead
Zhan McIntyre, SFHA Policy Lead, provides an update on changes to intentionality and local connection legislation.
Earlier this year, the Scottish Government consulted on changing legislation relating to intentionality and local connection with regards to homelessness. On 10 October, the Homelessness etc. (Scotland) Act 2003 (Commencement No. 4) Order 2019 was laid before the Scottish Parliament, taking forward the changes to intentionality and local connection legislation recommended by the Homelessness and Rough Sleeping Action Group (HARSAG).
