Abstract

The final report of the Homelessness Task Force had identified the need to gain a deeper understanding of the experiences of homeless people in BME communities in Scotland. To address this, the Scottish Executive Development Department commissioned new research to examine the provision and use of homelessness services in these communities. This study will inform the work of the homelessness monitoring group and the on-going development of local authorities' homelessness strategies.
