Scotland opens a short-stay village for homeless people
Social Bite Village in Edinburgh
Dubbed Social Bite Village, the community consists of 11 small homes with two bedrooms, a shared bathroom, living room, and a kitchenette. The land for the project was donated by the City of Edinburgh Council.
"The project has utilized vacant council-owned land with a beautiful pre-fabricated house design to create a bespoke community environment. When the first residents arrive next month, they’ll become part of a safe, positive and supported community," Josh Littlejohn, the co-founder of Social Bite told Culture Trip.
Residents of the village will house people in need between 12 and 18 months while permanent options and rehabilitation are sought out.
"There’s no one-size-fits-all solution to homelessness, and what we’re doing at the village is developing a viable alternative to the unsupported, substandard and expensive temporary accommodation models that are prevalent within the homelessness system," Littlejohn explained.
