There has been recent interest and uptake in alternative housing to provide transitional accommodation to those looking to move into more long term housing, one of which is Modular housing, yet there remains little known about such housing solutions.
This research provides an overview of the current modular and container housing provision in the UK.
Watch the recording from our event 'Is modular housing an effective solution to reduce homelessness?' to find out more about our findings.
This project aims to create a starting point for consideration of how modular housing could work in practice and what the potential benefits and limitations of this type of accommodation are.
Future phases of this project will involve gathering people's experiences and outcomes to understand how effective they are at preventing homelessness.
