Temporary Accomodation
Short-term accomodation can take many different forms including hotels, bed and breakfasts, hostels, a council or housing association flat. These can often be unsuitable due to overcrowding, a need for repairs, or inaccessable due to a disability or health condition. There is a current need in the UK for 100,000 homes (equivalent to £20 billion investment) for people who are living in temporary accomodation.
