Homeless offered flats by two property entrepreneurs in Tayside


Graeme and Leanne Carling from the property management company, PRS Group, are offering units from their properties in Tayside to house homeless people - free of charge.

The couple came with the idea as they were taking part in an event organised by Social Bite.

They are planning to house up-to eight people for a year.

Mr Carling said:

“We didn’t hesitate to back Sleep in the Park Dundee.

“As property developers and supporters of their mission, it just makes sense that we would both take part in and sponsor it.

“But it was also important to walk the walk and go an extra step, particularly as we are landlords.

“Not only did we want to sleep out, we wanted to put some of our units to good use and offer accommodation free of charge to homeless people for a year.”

Social Bite founder Josh Littlejohn said:

“We’re delighted to be working with Graeme and Leanne on both Sleep in the Park Dundee and on their offer to provided free accommodation for the homeless.

“It’s only through innovative solutions like this that we will help eradicate homelessness in Scotland.”
