Can social investment play a role in accelerating an end to homelessness?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

Can social investment play a role in accelerating an end to homelessness?
The Centre for Homelessness Impact a member of a consortium that is evaluating a three-year social investment pilot that aims to deliver over 200 move-on homes for people sleeping rough and those at risk of homelessness. The pilot is the result of a partnership between Big Society Capital, the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities (DLUHC), Bridges Fund Management, Resonance, and Social and Sustainable Capital (SASC). The Policy Evaluation and Research Unit at Manchester Metropolitan University is leading this evaluation and working in partnership with the Centre for Homelessness Impact, the UK Collaborative Centre for Housing Evidence, the Institute of Social Policy, Housing and Equalities Research (I-SPHERE), People’s Voice Media and the Sol Price Center for Social Innovation at the University of Southern California. The is to understand the role of social investment in supporting people who have experienced, or are at risk of experiencing rough sleeping and homelessness. We are starting with a four-month feasibility study, followed by a three-year evaluation to assess the effectiveness of this pilot. During the feasibility study, we are assessing different impact evaluation designs and assessing the size of the social investment market for rough sleeping or homelessness accommodation. Some elements of the main study are dependent on the outcome of the feasibility study, but key elements will include a process evaluation, an impact evaluation, and an economic evaluation. During the evaluation we will train and support some of the people who access the accommodation to tell their stories and these stories will form an important strand of the impact evaluation.
