About this survey

Scottish Housing Day is about celebrating the impact that housing makes to the lives of people and communities across the country and this year, we are focusing on housing as a human right.

Housing is a human right. The right to adequate housing was recognised as part of the right to an adequate standard of living in the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and in the 1966 International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights. However, this human right is not protected by law here in Scotland. We know that the Scottish Government is considering writing human rights into Scots law amid fears that existing protections may be eroded when the UK leaves the EU. This may include the right to adequate housing.

As such, we want to hear from you about your views on housing and human rights. Do housing rights need to be safeguarded? If so, what rights in particular?

We will use feedback from this survey and focus groups that we are hosting across the country to prepare a report for the Scottish Government for this year's Scottish Housing Day. We want everyone in Scotland to be able to recognise their human right to a safe, affordable, accessible home.

The survey should only take about 5 to 10 minutes to complete and it will remain open until Friday 28 June 2019.
