Housing and Social Justice Directorate

What we do

We work with local government, housing associations and the private sector to ensure that everyone living in Scotland has a high-quality, sustainable home they can afford and that meets their needs.

We also work with communities and partners to tackle poverty and to make Scotland fairer.

We are mainly responsible for:

  • increasing the supply of high quality, affordable homes
  • creating communities where people live, work and flourish
