Alternative solutions for charitable housing

CHARITY BEGINS WITH A CONTAINER HOME

You need quick, affordable and effective options for housing people in an emergency or providing temporary accommodation until public sector options are available.

YOUR OPTIONS: THE PROS AND CONS

B&B accommodation/hostels

  • Good, short-term option for emergency housing
  • Limited availability and rarely suited to families
  • Can be expensive

Empty homes

  • Temporary rental option for family housing and improves neighbourhoods blighted by empty homes
  • Requires time and investment to make derelict buildings fit for living

Emergency accommodation in public/charity buildings: schools, community centres, church halls, ex-military bases

  • Limited availability and high running costs for providers
  • Very temporary and basic, with no privacy or room for personal effects

Converted shipping containers

  • Plentiful supply and quick to install
  • Designed for cargo, not for people – have to be substantially adapted to provide permanent dwelling
