Revive Scotland was established as a three-year project with funding from the Scottish Government Homelessness Prevention Fund, which was administered via the Scottish Federation of Housing Associations.
This funding comes to an end in December 2023 and with this in mind, from 15th September 2023 we will no longer be able to accept any new referrals to the service. This will allow us adequate time to concentrate on rehousing our existing live caseload, with a view to securing moves for all women we’re currently working with.
