Tell us your views: The Homeless England Directory

Thursday, 4 August 2016 - 3:00pm

Homeless England has been updated and we want to know what you think about it.

Homeless England is an online directory of services across England for people experiencing or at risk of homelessness. It is the only national source of information on the provision of homelessness support and includes more than 2,000 services, detailing the range of support services available, from accommodation and day centres to local authority housing options and homeless health services and is an important resource for advice workers, hostel staff, day centres and anyone in contact with people who are homeless or in housing need. The information is intended to be used to help advisors and the public find out what homelessness support services are available in their area and also to inform a range of research projects that map services and trends within the homelessness sector to help us build a picture of homelessness provision across the country.

We had been running the Homeless UK website for about 15 years and recently launched a new and improved version that's now part of the Homeless Link website and which focusses on services in England. We also took the opportunity to update both the look and feel of the site, and improve the search functionality to make it easier for people to find what they are looking for.

We aim to be the best online resource for homelessness services in England, by improving the quality of data, search-ability and user experience. Please help us achieve this by answering a few questions relating to your experience of the directory, by Wednesday 17th August. We will use this feedback to inform further enhancements.

If you would like more information about the Homeless England Directory, please contact Gareth Thomas - Information Manager.
