The Academy will provide a place to share your learning and learn from others in Scotland, Europe and beyond, and contribute to a growing community of practice. We seek to drive momentum and to promote good practice as Housing First evolves in Scotland.
The Academy will act as a link between Housing First services and partner agencies. It will also act as a conduit to create a flow of information to and from the Housing First Europe Hub, of which Turning Point Scotland are a founding member.

Ewan Aitken tells us that Covid-19 has provided a golden opportunity for long lasting positive change. "We are at a unique moment in history together, one where what was previously cast aside by some of the powers-that -be as an idealistic ambition, is now both possible and necessary"

No Housing First service operates in isolation, all services are connected to a wider system of support structures. How can we ensure that this wider system supports the Housing First approach, rather than limiting it?
