This technical report accompanies a shorter briefing: No crib for a bed - a closer look at bed poverty and the Household Support Fund crisis. The aim of this research was to better understand how local authorities’ local crisis support services were being used to address bed poverty, one key aspect of child poverty. 

This report provides further background and analysis of the Freedom of Information (‘FOI’) data published in that briefing.
