The project aimed to review the extent to which the housing needs of the armed forces community in Tameside are being met and to make recommendations for potential improvements. This required collating information about the ways in which organisations delivering housing services currently work: what is known about the circumstances of ex-armed forces personnel by staff in organisations operating locally; what do they offer to the armed forces community; what demands are placed on organisations; and what support service providers feel they need to best meet extant needs. The review therefore sought to understand the following questions: - What level of demand is there for housing and housing related support among the armed forces community in Tameside, and how is demand being recorded? - What are organisations operating locally doing to meet demand? - What recommendations can be made to improve systems and ways of working? A range of stakeholders were liaised with throughout the course of the review in order to inform them about the evaluation, secure commitment to the work, and identify and access evidence and data. Information on the numbers of the armed forces community supported was sought in order to build a picture of the types of demands made. Twenty-eight separate stakeholder organisations were asked to provide data and/or participate in a telephone interview.In total, 16 of the organisations approached agreed to participate through telephone interviews.
