SHEN - Who we are

The Scottish Homelessness and Employability Network (SHEN) is a membership organisation which promotes employability as a sustainable route out of homelessness. It was set up in 2003 with the support of  Communities Scotland, Scottish Enterprise, Scottish Business in the Community, Scottish Council for Single Homeless (SCSH), Scottish Foyer Network, Youthlink, Scottish Simon/Cyrenian Alliance, Scottish Adult Learners Partnership and Scottish Churches Housing Action.

SHEN is now funded by the Scottish Government and has a wide-ranging membership from voluntary organizations, Scottish Local Authorities and specialists from the field s of homelessness and employability. It is hosted by SCSH, with a part-time Network co-ordinator based in their Edinburgh Office. A Steering Group of interested members oversees Network activity.
