Transitional Shelter: Quality, Standards and Upgrading Guidelines

Whilst the majority of shelters are of suitable quality, there are many which have been assessed by Transitional Accommodation Project (TAP) and others, as being sub-standard. The purpose of this document is to discuss the issues relating to improving the quality of these shelters. Also, to propose a methodology to do so, with the aim of assisting TAP to develop a policy on upgrading and to provide guidance on this topic to the districts, whilst allow sufficient flexibility to ensure that specific situations and structures in each district can be accommodated.
