An evaluation of The Open House Programme, designed to provide vulnerable homeless people with year round emergency shelters, coupled with assistance and advice services. The study examined the operation of the first five open houses in Cambridge, Crawley, Doncaster, Gloucester and Stevenage. It found that while successful in providing emergency accommodation, the programme was unable to offer the complex package of support which vulnerable homeless people need to help them resettle into the community. An Executive Summary is available from the Centre for Housing Policy website at www.york.ac.uk/inst/chp/ohsum.htm.
