Since the early 1990s, the government has invested hugely in tackling homelessness and its prevention and alleviation, and programmes and support for people who are homeless or at risk have expanded. There was little evidence for service-commissioners and practitioners, however, about the outcomes for homeless people who were resettled and their support needs over time. Resettlement is a more intense process than rehousing, and involves preparation for moving, assisting with the move, and arranging support if needed once rehoused. The FOR-HOME study was undertaken in 2007-10 to investigate the outcomes of the resettlement of single homeless people. The study involved 400 of their clients who were resettled into independent accommodation. People were interviewed at the time of being rehoused and after 6 and 15/18 months. This study found that resettlement was generally successful. By 15/18 months, 80% of the participants were still housed, 7.5% had become homeless again, contact had been lost with 8.5%, and 4% had died or were in prison, hospital or a rehabilitation unit.
