Policy and Research team

To influence change we must make a compelling case to policy makers at all levels, drawing together the strongest evidence, and identifying solutions that prevent homelessness. We work across national and local government to influence the development of policy, strategy and investment. We conduct research to better understand homelessness and how we can address it.
