The research was conducted by the University of
Sheffield in collaboration with Centrepoint and five
other homelessness organisations -
Broadway, Framework, St Anne's, St Mungo's and Thames Reach.
It was funded by the UK Economic and Social Research
The participants were tracked for up to 18 months after
resettlement and were interviewed in depth on three occasions
over this period.
The study, the first of its kind, found 81 per cent of
single homeless people were successfully living independently 18
months after leaving homelessness services.
