Sleep Walk

For Shelter

Homelessness is currently a huge issue in Edinburgh and the cold weather at present only makes it worse for those who are currently living on the streets.  Shelter Scotland are showing their support for people without a home with their 'Sleep Walk for Shelter' campaign.  

On Wednesday 11th December 2019, ETF representatives will join Shelter Scotland and other organisations from across Edinburgh for the 'Sleep Walk for Shelter'.  The meeting place is Shelter Scotland Edinburgh Hub, 6 South Charlotte Street at 5.30pm with the march due to begin at 6.00pm and finish at the Scottish Parliament around 7.30pm.

Your chance to make a difference

Would you like to contribute to the City of Edinburgh Council's (CEC's) draft Tenant Participation Strategy?  The final stage in CEC's consultation process is currently taking place and tenants can have their say in a number of ways: Through the draft Tenant Participation Strategy, CEC wants to ensure that tenants really:
  • Know the different ways they can become involved;
  • Can take part and help influence decisions if they want to;
  • Have the support and resources they need to take part;
  • Can help to develop quality services.
