This statistics bulletin provides information on Housing Options services in Scotland from 1 April 2022 to 31 March 2023.

The statistics are based on administrative data collected by local authorities in the course of providing Housing Options services that are available when households seek assistance for housing-related issues.

The bulletin includes information on the number of approaches made, details on the reasons for the approaches made, the activities undertaken, and the outcomes achieved. It also draws comparisons to trends within our most recent homelessness statistics publication.
