For this special episode we were delighted to be invited by the Chartered Institute of Housing to record live amongst the bustle of Scotland’s Housing Festival. We were joined by then Senior Policy Officer for Crisis Scotland, Rhiannon Sims. We spoke to Rhiannon about equalities in the current Scottish Housing Climate, about the concept of “reasonableness” and disadvantage in accessing housing and homelessness, and connecting knowledge with practice.
