  • Under One Roof is a partnership of over 30 statutory and voluntary organisations addressing the needs of single homeless people in Lambeth and Southwark. It was awarded a King's Fund grant in 1997 with the intention of offering a new one-stop service for single homeless people and improving relationships between local statutory and voluntary organisations. The two multiagency teams have seen over 200 clients. The interim evaluation suggests however that these cases do not indicate improved effectiveness when compared to a control group using existing services, and the service has been of limited use to outside agencies. Under One Roof has tested two other models for developing 'joined-up' services for single homeless people. It has succeeded in piloting a new type of multi-agency panel focusing on the needs of vulnerable rough sleepers. It has also identified a new approach to 'generic assessment' which requires further development. There have been identifiable improvements in joint working at both strategic and operational levels. A final report will be produced in October 2000, including an independent evaluation.
