Homes for Everyone: Solidarity protest with homeless people
The owner of Abbots House is one of many making a fortune from exploiting homeless people placed there by Edinburgh City Council. Instead of building homes to solve the housing crisis once and for all, Edinburgh City Council are paying out £120,000 a week to hostels and B&Bs.
Whole families are being put in one room. Dirty and dilapidated rooms, filthy mattresses, disgusting shared athrooms and toilets with no locks …
We say to City of Edinburgh Council:
· Stop putting families in homeless bed and breakfasts
· Take immediate action to drastically improve the appalling conditions in Abbots House and other homeless B&B’s like Almond House
· Provide more genuine social housing for rent so no-one has to stay in homeless B&B’s
