The Foundation made an award to Shelter Scotland to assist with expanding the knowledge of housing law of solicitors and lay representatives within the Shelter Housing Law Service (SHLS).

This included funding SHLS’ subscription to Greens Housing Law Report, attending external training courses on the Private Housing (Tenancies) (Scotland) Act 2016 and attending the Housing Law Practitioners Conference.

Following the above, SHLS members used knowledge gained to train others on the Private Residential Tenancies Act and the Equality Act, as well as developing training on homelessness for internal and external audiences.
