Abstract
First paragraph: Just over a year ago, I wrote a piece here about the research we had just completed on the housing journeys of Armed Forces veterans. Our research highlighted the challenges that some veterans can face in dealing with housing issues. Although the popular perception that most rough sleepers are veterans is something of a myth and most Service personnel make a perfectly successful transition to civilian life, there are still some who struggle. In particular, those who spend their Service career living in Armed Forces accommodation may not understand the complexity of the civilian housing system, and find themselves lost in the multitude of organisations and bureaucratic processes.
