We believe homelessness can be ended but we need the evidence to prove it
It can be difficult to get a clear picture of the true scale of homelessness in the UK.
Homelessness is a complex issue, and its definition can be broad – from rough-sleeping to living in temporary accommodation to sofa surfing. It also presents differently across the UK – whether it’s rural, inner city or coastal.
By taking a place-based approach, and working with six locations across the UK that all have different challenges, we will collate good quality evidence and data, which is essential if we want to truly understand homelessness in all its forms and how to finally end it.
