Tenancy Sustainment Teams (TSTs) were set up by the former Department of the Environment, Transport and the Regions (DETR) in 2000 to provide resettlement and continuing support to former rough sleepers living in accommodation funded by the Rough Sleepers Unit (RSU; formerly the Rough Sleepers Initiative, RSI). Tenancy Sustainment Teams were intended to contribute to the overall aim of the RSU to reduce rough sleeping through the prevention of tenancy breakdown amongst former rough sleepers rehoused in RSU designated housing. The Office of the Deputy Prime Minister (ODPM, now Communities and Local Government) commissioned the School of the Built Environment, Heriot-Watt University, to undertake an evaluation of TSTs in the summer of 2004. The main aim of the evaluation was to assess the effectiveness of Tenancy Sustainment Teams in meeting aims and objectives set by ODPM.
