Housing & Regeneration montageSummary: Transgender and Housing and Regeneration

The Scottish Government currently does not have information on the experiences of transgender people in relation to housing and regeneration.

 

A Scottish Transgender Alliance survey in 2012 addressed tenure and homelessness. It reported that 22% of 526 respondents owned their own property, with 11% renting privately as a joint tenant and nine percent renting privately as a single tenant. Most respondents lived in a city - 53% of the 545 answering this question - with a further 20% living in a town near a city; only 23% lived in an area that they described as rural.

Homelessness

  • 19% of the 542 respondents reported having been homeless at some point, with 11% having been homeless more than once. 171 respondents provided information about having to leave housing:
  • "7% stated that they had left their parental home due to people's reactions upon finding out that they were trans or had a trans history,
  • 6% had left a home shared with a partner,
  • 4% had left a home that was shared with other people,
  • 3% had had to leave their own home which they lived in alone due to other people's reactions to their trans status".
