This chapter evaluates the Dundee Families Project, which was established to help families who are homeless or at a severe risk of homelessness as a result of ASB. The Dundee Families Project was developed in response to a number of factors. One of these was the pressure faced by the local authorities in Dundee to take action against those who caused problems for their neighbours. It shows that the Project gained 126 referrals during its first four years of operation, and that the referred families were all poor and many of the households were headed by a lone parent. It determines that the nature of the ASB was varied, but was almost always serious and prolonged.

Keywords:   Dundee Families Project, homeless, homelessness, referrals, poor families, nature of ASB
