Emergency shelters and types of temporary accommodationavailable to municipal authorities.

The phrase temporary accommodation consists of two terms neither of which is clearly defined in legislationand guidelines. Temporary housing must meet certain standards, however, such as being available to tenants day and night, facilities for cooking and basic personal hygiene such as access to WC, baths and clean clothes.

The report presents and discusses findings from a study of the use and quality of emergency shelters and other forms of temporary accommodation available to municipal authorities.

The temporary accommodation facilities we have investigated for this mapping study can be divided into three groups.
- Emergency shelters
- Overnight shelters
- Other forms of temporary housing

The data on which the report relies were collected through one survey of 107 municipalities and another of 145 temporary accommodation providers.In addition to the surveys,the municipalities answered a vignette survey which was sent together with the questionnaire.
