Abstract

In 2011 the Welsh Local Authority Homelessness Network sought to explore new and innovative solutions to tackling long-term homelessness. The Network worked with a number of local authorities to help fund fresh approaches to working with entrenched rough sleepers. Five pilot areas were provided funding: 1. Cardiff; 2. Newport; 3. Swansea; 4. Bridgend; 5. Ynys Mon & Gwynedd. This study was commissioned by the Welsh Local Authority Homelessness Network in partnership with the Welsh Assembly Government to evaluate these pilots. The evaluation for the pilots was undertaken by bringing together a range of information, both secondary and primary, and sharing these emerging findings with practitioners within learning and sharing workshops over the course of the evaluation. There were three aspects to the methodology: the collation and review of available information; qualitative interviews with a total of 18 service providers over three separate time periods of the pilots (beginning, middle and end); qualitative interviews with a total of 17 recipients of the Individual Budgets at the outset of the pilots. 11 of these were re-interviewed at the end of the pilots to determine progress and impacts experienced.
