Andrew (35) was threatened with homelessness after finishing his Social work degree course at Glasgow Caledonian University. He had to leave his halls of residence.
Andrew heard about Positive Action in Housing through a friend. We advised Andrew on his housing options. Despite having lived in Glasgow for the past few years he was not aware of all the different neighborhoods, he felt most familiar with the areas closest to the city Centre and where he was most likely to be able find work. Our focus was on helping him access Glasgow’s social housing in these areas. We advised Andrew of the application process, and the potential time scale involved. We helped him to complete and submit several applications to key RSLs in his preferred areas as well as the Glasgow Housing Register. Finally, an offer came through and he was able to make a permanent move into his own home.
I heard about Positive Action through a friend. The caseworker told me about social housing options and helped me make applications near to the city centre. I was so pleased to receive an offer. I now have a stable home and am moving on with my life.
