This Alcohol Research UK funded project explored alcohol consumption patterns of the homeless population. The research aimed to provide further context and understanding to changes in consumption patterns for the homeless population in Merseyside. Co-productive research methods were adopted for this study. Twelve participants took part in a semi-structured interview and completed a life history calendar. The life history calendar is a structured approach that provides a framework and cues to trigger recall through using significant events (e.g. births, relationships, housing, incarcerations, etc.) to use as reference points to link to changes in alcohol consumption. A further five participants took part in a PhotoVoice activity during which they took photographs of objects that were important to them in their everyday lives. The research demonstrates the importance of supporting people at risk of becoming homeless and/or alcohol dependent to cope with stressful significant life events in order to avoid a deterioration in their living situation and the development of alcohol problems.
