Two very sheltered housing schemes in LB Merton suffer from a lack of suitable applicants, as illustrated by the lack of a waiting list for the schemes. Our IQP team identified some of the main causes for this applicant shortage by reviewing tenant and scheme records, conducting interviews with the tenants, administrative figures, and members of the application review board, and reviewing housing and social services policies. We then isolated eight factors that limit applications to these schemes and proposed specific recommendations for addressing each issue.
