The research:

  • reviews international literature relating to the drivers of extreme housing exclusion and approaches to addressing the phenomenon;
  • identifies and analyses innovative approaches to tackling the problem based on empirical evidence, including how and why they work; and
  • assesses the transferability of the approaches to the UK, and what would need to change in order for them to work.
