Temporary Accommodation in Scotland: Interim Report

On behalf of HARSAG, Social Bite (an Edinburgh-based social enterprise with a mission to end homelessness in Scotland, whose co-founder Josh Littlejohn is a member of HARSAG) commissioned Heriot-Watt University’s Institute for Social Policy, Housing and Equalities Research (I-SPHERE) to conduct research mapping the current landscape, with a view to enabling an assessment of the nature of the transformation to TA in Scotland now required.

The overall aim of the study is to provide a comprehensive analysis of the current situation, including key stakeholder and TA resident perspectives, to inform future policy development. This interim report details emerging findings from the initial stages of the study, these being: a review of existing research and literature; qualitative interview with 16 expert key informants; and analysis of national statistics on TA type and usage.
