Question reference: S6W-13229
- Asked by: Pauline McNeill, MSP for Glasgow, Scottish Labour
- Date lodged: 15 December 2022
Current status: Answered by Neil Gray on 20 December 2022
To ask the Scottish Government how many people since arriving in Scotland from Ukraine through the (a) Super Sponsor Scheme and (b) Homes for Ukraine scheme have been (i) assessed as homeless or threatened with homelessness, (ii) living in temporary accommodation and (iii) on a housing waiting list in each month since the start of the scheme, broken down by local authority.
The Scottish Government does not currently have the information you have requested as we do not link the visa routes and homelessness status of displaced individuals from Ukraine.
However, the Scottish Government has agreed with Local Authorities to amend the homelessness data collection to record Ukrainian Displaced People applying for support after presenting as homeless, though this will take some time before these changes are fully implemented.
The Scottish Government regularly publish data summarising the latest Scotland-level information on people displaced by the war in Ukraine coming to Scotland through the Ukraine Sponsorship Scheme visa schemes on our website: Ukraine Sponsorship Scheme in Scotland: Ukraine Sponsorship Scheme in Scotland: statistics - December 2022 - gov.scot (www.gov.scot)
