Making Research Count: New Approaches to Homelessness

Activity: Talk or presentationDebate


New developments in prevention and in services for homeless people with complex needs are changing the face of our responses to homelessness. Alongside these developments, there is a new emphasis on effective outcome measurement and on thinking critically about the cost effectiveness of services to prevent, relieve and reduce homelessness. Looking at key emerging lessons on prevention in homelessness strategy, the rise and development of Housing First and engaging with the debates about the measurement of effectiveness in homelessness services, this session is designed to provide an overview of the latest thinking in homelessness policy.
