Homeless people to receive advice with their sandwiches

Homeless people throughout Scotland are to receive advice on
housing written on the sandwich bags given out to them at food
distribution points.

Each sandwich bag will answer six key questions for homeless
people compiled by former homeless people, Shelter and the Glasgow
Simon Community, which supports homeless people throughout the
city. The bags are durable, being made out of a material harder
wearing than paper, and designed to give out advice without
attracting stigma. The information on the bags also includes four
points about being homeless and four places to get further advice
and assistance.

Funded by HomePoint, the Scottish Homes’ housing information and
advice unit, the project starts this month.
