Research & Policy

Our work focuses on the hidden homeless population living in Unsupported Temporary Accommodation (UTA). Our aim is to ensure their stays in UTA are as short, safe and healthy as possible.

To achieve this, the Research & Policy team work to influence local and national policy through ongoing research projects and the implementation of our UTAG:N (Unsupported Temporary Accommodation Group Network).

We believe there are approximately 75,000 households stuck in Unsupported Temporary Accommodation across England. They are hidden within an unforgiving system, unheard, and systemically ignored. Our work gives these people a voice, enabling them to fully take part in the conversation about homelessness and housing. By listening to their experiences and involving them in developing solutions, we can create systemic change for all those in UTA.
