Online seminar: Preventing Homelessness, Averting Evictions – Enhanced Section 11 Practices
Thursday 30 July, 14:00–15:15.
During 2019, facilitated by Scotland’s Housing Network, four local authority members of the North and Islands Homelessness and Housing Options Hub worked with seven housing associations to develop enhanced practices around the serving of section 11 notices designed to avert evictions and prevent homelessness.
The project was very successful. It averted eviction in up to 100% of cases. The principles on which the project was based were:
- earlier intervention
- sharing more, and more useful, information
- working jointly in order to avert eviction.
The full project write-up, as well as subsequent guidance that was published jointly by the hub, SFHA and SHN, can be found online here.
Members of SFHA and Scotland’s Housing Network are invited to attend a free online seminar on Thursday 30 July, 14:00–15:15, to learn more about the experiences of the organisations that participated in the project and the practices that they will retain for the future.
During the online seminar, you will hear from representatives of the local authorities and housing associations that participated in the project about:
- their experiences of applying the project principles within their contexts
- what they discovered to be the challenges and what worked best
- what practices they will be retaining in their future management of threatened repossessions.
The seminar will be held using the Microsoft Teams platform. If you are not able to access Teams on your employer’s IT equipment, you may be able to connect on a personal laptop, tablet or phone.
