This Round-up highlights the prevalence of mental health issues, traumatic childhood experiences and suicide attempts amongst people accessing low-level homelessness support services. It brings together evidence from a two-year programme of work on 'multiple exclusion' homelessness (MEH) in partnership with Homeless Link, Economic and Social Research Council, Tenant Services Authority and the Department for Communities and Local Government.

The programme included:

  • a statistically robust account of MEH in seven UK cities;
  • evidence from the life histories and personal accounts of people with first-hand experience of MEH; and
  • reflections from front-line workers, managers and commissioners.
