To ask the Scottish Government what action it is taking to ensure that all local authorities are able to provide information regarding the number of disabled people on their housing waiting list.
Answered by: Kevin Stewart 19 February 2018
The way in which social landlords, including local authorities, hold information on their housing lists is a matter for each organisation. The Scottish Government’s Social Housing Allocations: A PracticeGuide includes advice on collecting information from applicants, including applicants applying on health and disability grounds.
The guidance is available on the Scottish Government’s website at: https://beta.gov.scot/publications/social-housing-allocations-a-practice-guide
