CommonSpace heard from Shelter Scotland director Graeme Brown, Glasgow Hub manager Sharon Berrie and principal solicitor Fiona McPhail on why they’re telling Glasgow City council “enough is enough”

SHELTER SCOTLAND organised a protest outside Glasgow City Chambers on Thursday 5 July, where campaigners chanted “one, two, three, four, gatekeeping no more, five, six, seven, eight, do your job accommodate”.

The aim of the protest was to highlight the fact that over 3000 homeless people were turned away by Glasgow City council last year – a situation which Shelter Scotland says leaves the council in breach of its legal obligations.
