Shelter Scotland celebrates 10 years in Dumfriesshire

The Dumfriesshire branch of Shelter Scotland is celebrating ten years of delivering homelessness and housing supports to people across the region.

Local MSPs, MPs and councillors are joining staff members at an exhibition in Dumfries, highlight the work of the charity.

The service in Dumfries has helped more than 1500 families and individuals since it first began in 2003, and former and current users of the service will be at the exhibition to chat about their experiences.

The charity employs eleven people who are responsible for delivering housing support and financial advice across the region.

"Over the last ten years Shelter Scotland in Dumfries has become an accepted and well-known part of the local community - from Kirkconnel to Kirkcudbright and Gretna to Gatehouse, this is a very special place to be working.

"I thank everyone for their backing over the years, in particular the Council for their continued funding of our service and their commitment to best practice in homelessness and housing support.

"We now look forward to the next ten years of helping the people of Dumfriesshire with their housing, homelessness and money advice needs."

– Sue Roberts, Scottish Service Manager, Shelter Scotland in Dumfries
