We, at the University of Lincoln, were commissioned in December 2020 to design and conduct a piece of research to address the following question.

“To identify how to most effectively design, deliver and evaluate/monitor services provided to those currently/with a history of/at risk of rough sleeping, taking a whole system approach, to achieve the vision of ending rough sleeping in Nottinghamshire.”

Within this overarching aim, there were four specific questions that we were asked to address:
a. What does the theory and evidence base (nationally and internationally) identify as the critical success factors in supporting those currently or at imminent risk of rough sleeping? What are the outcomes of this support?
b. What are the critical success factors of the Nottinghamshire RSI and RRP interventions and how do these compare to those identified above?
c. What outcomes are delivered by the Nottinghamshire RSI and RRP interventions and how do these compare to those identified above?
d. Based on the above, recommend a framework of key principles and outcomes that RSI and RRP services should operate under, as well as a methodology to evaluate delivery of these.

We conducted two focus groups, 26 semi structured interviews with staff and 12 with service users ( all conducted online due to COVID restrictions). Standardised measures relating to aspects of health and well being were included. Quantitative and qualitative analysis was conducted.

Twelve key themes were identified.
1. The context of the RSI/RRP projects
2. Mental Health
3. Trauma
4. Substance Use
5. Complex Needs
6. Physical Health
8. Accommodation
9.Personal Budgets
10. Landlord Support
11. RSI and RRP network
12. Foreign National Group
13. Staffing
14. COVID 19 Impact
