How to enhance temporary accommodation provision


How to enhance temporary accommodation provision


Providing suitable temporary accommodation (TA) is a statutory obligation for local authorities, and the cumulative effects of recent economic and social pressures have driven up demand for placements. If you’re responsible for commissioning and securing statutory TA for homeless households, this practice based briefing will provide practical guidance for looking at alternative options for sourcing TA provision.

It briefly outlines the wider policy context, considers the different models of providing TA and provides some case study examples to demonstrate how others have been able to successfully provide more cost effective and suitable TA in their areas.
