Temporary homeless accommodation

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Glasgow City Council should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear Glasgow City Council,

I am looking for information on the following questions.

- How many homeless people have been temporarily accommodated throughout the coronavirus crisis across Glasgow?

- Which establishments across Glasgow are being used to temporarily accommodate homeless people throughout the coronavirus?

- How much is being paid to these establishments for each individual person they are accommodating and are you able to provide a breakdown of this per establishment (it can be an average figure)?

- How many homeless people who were temporarily accommodated in these establishments have since been relocated to a permanent home?

- How often are addiction and support workers visiting each establishment to provide support to residents?

While appreciate that statutory bodies have 20 days in order to reply to an FOI request, I am a journalist looking for information for a story which I need urgently. If it is at all possible to provide this information within seven days, it would be very much appreciated.

Yours faithfully,

Lauren Gilmour
