Description:
The objective of this research was a study on degrees of homelessness and health issues facing some of our clients and leading to an evaluation of our own services. We wanted to compile a profile of clients and their needs with a view to establishing a baseline of their present living conditions. The research was carried out June - August 1997 in the premises of CentreCare and also at the 'accommodation' of some of our clients. In total 56 clients were interviewed, 49 from the Drop-in side of our service, which is an information, advice, referral and support service and 7 clients from the counselling service. Notwithstanding this small sample, the issues which have presented from the research highlight the importance of accommodation to the qua lity of peoples lives. Five case studies are included from different perspectives. It is tragic to note that four of our interviewees have died at a very young age in the 8 months since the completion of this questionnaire.
