Episode 2 – Moira Bayne, Housing Options Scotland

In Conversation with… Moira Bayne

Housing Options Scotland and CaCHE have come together to produce a series of ‘In Conversation’ blogs and short videos which tell stories about why accessible and inclusive housing, and housing-related services, are key to people’s lives.

This series aims to offer insights and experiences that highlight what people experience in their housing journeys, sharing ideas around best practice and starting to identify areas where improvements and better evidence are needed.

We will be having conversations with a range of professionals working both in housing, and with people who bear protected characteristics as noted under the Equalities Act (2010).

For our first conversation proper, Pedro Cameron and Dr Gareth Young talk to Chief Executive of Scottish charity Housing Options Scotland, Moira Bayne.

With Moira we discuss the history of the charity, which offers housing advice and information to people with disabilities, older people and members of the Armed Forces across Scotland. Moira shares her thoughts on the power of knowledge, the importance of person centered services, and the barriers that the groups she works with face in accessing housing.
