Dumfries and Galloway Council is warning that further cuts to its budget will affect the level of support it can provide to homeless people in the region.

The council will learn how much funding it is likely to receive when the Scottish Government publishes its Local Government Finance Settlement on 15 December.

It's anticipating having to cut millions of pounds from its budget, and is warning that there will be "severe consequences" for the homeless if that is the case.

These cuts will not only affect the homeless, but all of our most vulnerable people.

Councillor Tom McAughtrie, Chair of Dumfries and Galloway Council’s Communities Committee
