Research by Joanne Bretherton and Nicholas Pleace at the University of York
has highlighted the potential effectiveness of the Housing First approach in
reducing homelessness in England. This observational study of Housing First
services showed high levels of success in reducing long-­‐‑term and repeated
homelessness, which is associated with very high support needs. The
successes of these English Housing First services reflect the results of positive
evaluations of Housing First in North America and Europe.
