Our research focuses on Unsupported Temporary Accommodation (UTA). We believe it is under-researched and often completely missed within homelessness and housing conversations. The result is that households are left hidden, homeless and forgotten in accommodation that offers them a bleak reality – one of deteriorating mental and physical health, poor social environment and even an early death.
The published reports below focus on:
- The impact of UTA on residents
- Raising awareness of UTA
- Presenting and testing solutions to the challenges of UTA
