Research & Policy

Research into Unsupported Temporary Accommodation.

We are a learning organisation that has spent the past three years discovering how living in unsupported temporary accommodation affects the health and wellbeing of single homeless households and what we can do to improve services in the wider system to ensure people’s stay is as short, safe and healthy as possible.

The culmination of ourĀ first piece of serious research was published in December 2016 alongside the Institute for Public Policy Research (IPPR) North and funded by the LankellyChase Foundation. This was a three year longitudinal study conducted through 45 in-depth interviews with individuals living in UTA. Our published research can be found on our website:
