Exempt Accommodation

The Exempt Accommodation market in Birmingham currently houses more than 22,000 vulnerable people in over 5,000 properties and has been dominated by seven large providers over the last three years.

Partnership members, Barry Toon, Frances Heywood and Jon Stevens have been centrally involved in raising awareness and researching the scale, impact and potential responses to the problem of ‘unregulated tenancies’ in Birmingham in the context of other metropolitan cities. The situation is reaching a critical point with the risk of the collapse of the sector requiring urgent and concerted action to reform and restructure the whole of the EA sector in Birmingham.
