Homelessness Impact

Our goal is to improve the lives of people experiencing homelessness through better use of data and evidence.

In most areas of our lives, we take it for granted that evidence is used to inform important decisions. Homelessness should be no exception. The Centre for Homelessness Impact was founded to put reliable evidence and data at the heart of policymaking and to act as the catalyst for the evidence-led transformation of the homelessness field. We do this by working closely with national and local governments, co-designing and investing in groundbreaking projects, pioneering new ways to support evidence translation and building the movement for evidence-based practice in all fields.

“By focusing on What Works, the Centre for Homelessness Impact is paving the way for organisations in the field of homelessness and beyond to make evidence-led decisions. Their commitment to helping generate new evidence and then supporting it to be applied in practice means that policymakers, practitioners and commissioners everywhere can improve their outcomes on an ongoing basis, which during a pandemic is more important than ever.”
