The purpose of the research was to help identify and overcome any barriers which may exist for vulnerable homeless people in both accessing and sustaining settled accommodation within the private rented sector (Authors).
This report was commissioned by Housing Rights Service in 2011 and the bulk of the research was carried out by Policis during 2012. The full report is available on our website www.housingrights.org.uk. The purpose of the research was to help identify and overcome any barriers which may exist for vulnerable homeless people in both accessing and sustaining settled accommodation within the private rented sector. The study is intended to stimulate discussion and engagement with this important issue and to inform policy debate around how best to meet the housing needs of the vulnerable homeless in a private sector context.

The report has a particular focus on the most vulnerable, “chronic exclusion”, homeless clients with complex needs, whose voices are not often heard in public debate, and seeks to place the issues for this client group in the wider context of the potential role of the private rental sector in addressing homelessness. It brings together existing evidence, original research with homelessness service users, perspectives from Government and other stakeholders, research with private sector landlords and consultation with domain experts in Northern Ireland and elsewhere (Authors).
