This article reports findings from two studies (N = 88, N = 100) using Alzen's theory of planned behaviour (TPB) to predict homeless people's uptake of service programmes. Study I was conducted with an opportunity sample whereas Study 2 employed a representative sample. Both studies provide support for the application of the TPB, and demonstrate that the effects of demographic characteristics on behaviour were mediated by TPB variables. The discussion focuses on the role of attitudinal and normative components in actual behaviour, and on the potential role of social normative processes and stigmatization in homeless people's uptake of services.
