Tiny House Scotland is very proud to be involved with social entrepreneurs Social Bite in a project to build a Tiny House Homeless Village in Edinburgh next summer. The Tiny Houses will be based on the modular “NestHouse” developed by yours truly, Jonathan Avery!
Social Bite’s co-founder Josh Littlejohn said: “The Social Bite Village plan hopes to create a full-circle solution to the issue of homelessness – from housing to support to employment.
“In doing so we hope to alter the course of some of Scotland’s most vulnerable people for the better – swapping a destiny of poverty and exclusion for one of compassionate support and inclusion.”
All the units being built in the village are transportable and could be moved to another site in the future.
Joan Griffiths, vice convenor of City of Edinburgh Council, said: “Tackling homelessness remains a priority for the council and we work closely with our third sector partners to provide services for people who are homeless.
“Josh and the Social Bite team do so much good work for homeless people across the city already and we look forward to working with them on their plans going forward.”
