Our advice team hit the streets today - with our first ever drop-in clinic in Stirling!

We're on Port Street all day - don't be shy! If you have a query about your housing - no matter how big or small - do stop buy and speak free and confidentially to a trained adviser. ‪

90% of people believe it will be harder for their children to rent or buy a home, according to the latest +Ipsos MORI research.

We're very sad to say adiós to Manuel. Having volunteered with our Policy Team since May last year whilst studying for his Public Policy Masters at Edinburgh University, he's now left to move back to Ecuador.

Emma, our Senior Policy Officer, said: "He's been a huge asset to the team, and will be very much missed."

We wish Manuel a safe trip back home and hope to see him back in Scotland one day soon.
