New Scottish Social Housing Charter

Scottish Government publishes new Scottish Social Housing Charter

The Scottish Government has published the latest version of the Scottish Social Housing Charter.

Following a review and consultation, in which SFHA represented the views of its members, the Scottish Government has published the latest version of the Scottish Social Housing Charter. The updated Charter is available on the Scottish Government website.

The Charter was introduced as part of the Housing (Scotland) Act 2010 and was developed to set out the standards and outcomes that all social landlords should aim to achieve when performing their housing activities.

The first Charter came into effect on 1 April 2012 and was revised during 2016. The revised Charter was approved by the Scottish Parliament on 8 February 2017 and has effect from 1 April 2017.  

The next review of the Charter will take place during 2021.
