A Scottish university is looking to explore new ways of helping young people at risk of homelessness in Dundee.
Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh is set to examine a new “spare room” scheme that could provide housing for young people at risk of homelessness.
The scheme would match 16 to 25-year-olds in need of accommodation with a host’s spare room, with rent paid for the room and support provided to the young person and host during the placement.
For those interested in the scheme, the university is looking for people to join up with a focus group that will examine how this might work and to build an understanding of its feasability in the long term.
A discussion group in Dundee is planned for sometime in March, but an exact time is yet to be confirmed.
Those interested in taking part should contact the university.
However, while those taking part in these discussions can opt to be kept in touch with future developments there is absolutely no obligation to participate further if they change their mind.
If you are interested in being involved in the focus group, email research associate Janice Blenkinsopp at firstname.lastname@example.org stating your interest.
