Project Description

Unfortunately, over 20 per cent of the people accommodated through housing interventions discontinue their tenancies within six months of initial uptake. Yet, surprisingly, little is known about what motivates homeless people to make use of services programmes. To address this issue, we have developed practical measures that provide a detailed picture of homeless people’s perceptions – illuminating why homeless people make a transition to being permanently accommodated (Christian et al. 2003, 2011). In this PhD, candidates would be exploring psychosocial factors which appear to play a much more immediate and direct role than other more traditional indicators in shaping interventions and programme delivery. ¬As such, a strong background in applied social cognition, research methods, and statistics would be preferred.
