Queens Cross Housing Association does not have emergency or temporary accommodation for people who are homeless or are at risk of becoming homeless. If you are homeless or think you will be soon, you should contact your local authority for assistance.
If you live in Glasgow
Glasgow City Council’s Community Homeless teams deliver a homelessness service to anyone who is homeless, threatened with homelessness or is in need of advice about homelessness issues.
If you think you are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless, you’ll be offered an interview with your local Community Homeless Team. If you have nowhere to stay or are not able to stay in your home and are eligible for homelessness assistance, they will offer you temporary accommodation. They have different types of temporary accommodation throughout Glasgow including assessment centres, projects, temporary furnished flats, supported accommodation and bed and breakfast type accommodation.
If, after assessing your situation, the Council decide that you should have priority for housing they may send us your information. If this happens, we will give you gold priority for housing with us. You will not be given gold priority for homelessness unless the council refer you to us so it is important that you speak with them.

Our allocation policy is focused on homeless prevention and securing settled housing for homeless households as quickly as possible.
Where possible we will prevent homelessness by working with applicants using the housing options approach. We are committed to our duty to accommodate homeless applicants under Section 5 of the Housing (Scotland) Act 2001. We work in partnership with Glasgow City Council to assist in meeting the statutory responsibilities including Housing First and the Rapid Rehousing Transition Plan.
