Final Report – The situation of people who are at risk of homelessness in the city of Dundee

Research has taken place across various church based initiatives in Dundee known as the Dundee Drop In Network and this report reveals the situation of people who are at risk of homelessness in the city of Dundee. These initiatives provide crisis support for people who need access to food, a place to meet and access to information and advice. Over recent times the demands on such services has increased due to the welfare cuts and the impact of benefit sanctions.

Developed as a partnership between Dundee Drop In Network, Faith in Community Dundee and the University of Dundee, active collaboration between volunteers from the drop in services and students from the University resulted in the completion of the research data.
