  • 7. Targeted Research – Questionnaire Approach
      • Theme: Social Housing Allocation and Homelessness
      • Exploring access to social housing for people who are currently or potentially homeless i.e. within, or at risk of being, within the ‘roofless’ and ‘houseless’ groups identified by ETHOS.
      • The research will only be concerned with ‘general needs’ social housing, i.e. housing that is designed as accommodation rather than as an purpose-built environment in which support services are delivered. It will not explore access to purpose built accom-modation based supported housing services, such as staircase model services, emergency accommodation or homeless hostels.
  • 8. Targeted Research – Questionnaire Approach
      • Research Questions:
      • How can access to social housing help tackle homelessness and potential homelessness?
      • What factors facilitate access to social housing for homeless and potentially homeless people?
      • What factors inhibit access to social housing for homeless and potentially homeless people?
      • How can access to social housing for homeless and potentially homeless people be enhanced?
  • 9. Targeted Research – Questionnaire Approach
      • Methodology
      • Relatively small scale project relying primarily on a questionnaire based survey of expert respondents in 13 selected member states.
      • National experts will be asked to provide a overview of social housing and homelessness in their societies, but the research will also make quite extensive use of vignettes.
      • Each vignette will present the expert respondents with an example of a household in a situation of current or potential homelessness and ask them to describe and comment upon the social housing options that are potentially available to that household.
  • 10. Targeted Research – Questionnaire Approach
      • Focus on 13 member states
      • Belgium Poland
      • Czech Republic Portugal
      • Finland Romania
      • France Sweden
      • Germany Spain

      • Finalisation of questionnaire by end of April 2011
      • Questionnaire circulated to expert respondents beginning of May 2011
      • Questionnaires returned by 10th June 2011
      • Draft report to be circulated by end of August 2011
  • 12. Research Agenda (mainly with external funding)
    • Task: Develop Research Agenda for five to ten years and do comparative research on important themes
      • Use 20 years book and input from FEANTSA members as basis
      • Intensify use of external research funding for targeted primary research (e.g. on destitute migrants, risk studies, cost comparisons etc.) with differing external partners
    • Collection of themes has been compiled. Prioritisation next step.
    • Research themes from European Consensus Conference Jury Recommendations will be extracted.
