Our mission is to improve the availability of high-quality temporary accommodation options for homeless households in the capital.

What is PLACE?

PLACE (which stands for Pan-London Accommodation Collaborative Enterprise) acquires modular housing units for London boroughs to use as temporary accommodation.

PLACE was developed by the London Housing Directors’ Group and by London Councils, which represents local government in the capital. This is the first time UK local authorities have collaborated to purchase modular housing for this purpose.
