Building a culture to end homelessness for good.

The Centre for Homelessness Impact is an independent organisation that supports the use of data and evidence in bringing about a sustainable end to homelessness.

Good decision-making should be informed by the best available evidence of what works. As a member of the What Works Network, we support organisations in the field of homelessness and beyond to make evidence-led decisions and adopt evidence-led practices.

We make evidence accessible and fill the gaps

We are committed to helping generate the evidence required to redesign the complex system of determinants of homelessness, and translate it to make it as accessible as possible to everyone.

We support data and evidence to be applied in practice

We will provide resources and services that improve skills among policymakers and practitioners to analyse data, evaluate interventions and use data and evidence for decision-making.

We are mobilising a learning culture

We’re fostering a learning culture in which data and evidence helps policymakers, practitioners and commissioners everywhere improve outcomes on an ongoing basis.
