Tackling Multiple Disadvantage: final evaluation report

Posted 08.01.2021

Tackling Multiple Disadvantage (TMD) was a Building Better Opportunities project funded by the Big Lottery Fund and the European Social Fund. The project operated across 17 London boroughs and was delivered by a partnership of homelessness and mental health organisations: Crisis, St Mungo’s, Thames Reach, and Mind in the City, Hackney and Waltham Forest.

TMD was delivered between April 2017 and March 2020 and aimed to support people experiencing homelessness with multiple and complex needs into training or employment. The support model was designed to holistically address participants’ needs to enable them to develop the stability, confidence and skills to access employment.

This is the final report of a three-year evaluation of the Tackling Multiple Disadvantage project.


BBO is having a significant impact on individual lives, supporting people to increase their confidence, independence and achieve their employment aspirations.
