The Scottish Housing Regulator has published a new poster for Gypsy / Travellers who use sites provided by social landlords.

The poster aims to raise awareness of the standards landlords are expected to deliver against the Scottish Social Housing Charter.

The Regulator’s poster includes information about important areas of landlords’ services such as how quickly and how well repairs are dealt with, the amount of rent people are expected to pay, how the landlord should communicate, and how the landlord is performing. 

The poster follows a report published last year which highlighted the need for landlords to improve services to Gypsy/Travellers. 

Copies of the poster have been displayed at the Gypsy / Traveller site at Dennystoun Forge and you can see a copy below
