Abstract

Purpose

This paper aims to throw light on the value of accommodation and support services and the likely consequences of their withdrawal.

Design/methodology/approach

Research was completed by a team of researchers from Nottingham Trent and Salford Universities under the Multiple Exclusion Homelessness programme funded by CLG, the Economic and Social Research Council and the Joseph Rowntree Foundation.

Findings

Agencies whose priorities are influenced by other agendas arising from statutory limitations or government targets have conflicting priorities that sustain multiple exclusion homelessness in a number of key circumstances.

Originality/value

Findings from this research will enable policy‐makers and practitioners to take better account of service user perspectives, experiences and priorities.
