We are delighted to announce that Greg Hurst has joined the Centre for Homelessness Impact team as Head of Communications and Public Affairs. 

Greg joins us from a long career in journalism. He was previously a journalist at The Times, most recently as social affairs editor where he reported on homelessness and inequality. His other roles at The Times were as education editor, assistant news editor and political correspondent. He also worked for local and regional newspapers and for seven years was political correspondent at Westminster for the Southern Newspapers group.

In this role, Greg will develop the Centre’s communications strategy, and lead on our website, media relations, public affairs, social media, campaigns, events, and publications, experimenting with new and better ways to convey evidence messages.

Centre for Homelessness Impact Chief Executive, Dr Ligia Teixeira, said “Greg brings an incredible wealth of skills and experience and a new insight which will be crucial in helping us advance our mission. I am excited to work with Greg to find new creative ways to build  the evidence-led movement to end homelessness.”


Greg Hurst said “In my years as a journalist I’ve seen the ways in which homelessness affects people in the UK. By communicating effectively what the evidence says about what works, I believe we can help practitioners, policymakers and leaders move towards an end to homelessness.”
