We are a learning organisation. We want to learn more about unsupported temporary accommodation, how living in it affects single homeless households and what we can do to improve our services and the wider system to keep people’s stay as short safe and healthy as possible.
We are currently conducting our first piece of serious research: a 3-year longditudinal qualitative study with tenants of this accommodation. The project is being carried out in conjunction with IPPR North and is funded by LankellyChase Foundation.
We are using our expertise and learning from research to inform practice across the sector through: relationships, events, strategic partnerships, networks and consultancy. We engage with decision makers and those involved in policy at a national and local level, to share our learning from the frontline and research, informing policy which affects our service users.
