An independent organisation, willing to do things differently, is needed to champion and support the use of data and evidence.
We launched to act as a catalyst for evidence-led change to enable breakthrough results. We believe that homelessness is an issue that can be solved sustainably. We know that this is an ambitious goal and that lasting change will require collective efforts across a complex system and addressing root causes, not just symptoms.
To break the cycle of homelessness, we need to start with the end goal in mind. We need to foster a learning culture in which data and evidence helps policymakers, practitioners and commissioners everywhere make better decisions to improve outcomes on an ongoing basis.
