In the first scheme of its kind in England, six modular homes have been installed on a temporary site in Cambridge to house six local people experiencing homelessness.

The project is a collaboration between social enterprises Allia and New Meaning, and Jimmy’s Cambridge, a charity which provides emergency help, support and accommodation to people experiencing homelessness in Cambridge. The CCHPR research team have been analysing the impact of the project, in collaboration with Dr Johannes Lenhard from the Department of Social Anthropology’s Max Planck Cambridge Centre for Ethics, Economy and Social Change.

In addition to an article on the University of Cambridge main website, the modular units have been widely covered in the media:

'Cambridge's First New Modular Homes', a video from Jimmy's Cambridge, shows the new units in situ, and provides a look inside.
