Our Vision

We envisage a society where the experience of homelessness, in instances where it cannot be prevented, is only ever rare, brief, and non-recurrent.

The new Centre is committed to building the evidence of what’s working and, more importantly, what’s not, so we can fix it: facts that if we hear them and heed them could help us meet the challenge of ending homelessness faster.

With the right evidence in hand we can learn more about what interventions are actually effective. And if we can bridge the gap between knowing what needs to be done and actors in this field using the information to make better choices, then we can make great leaps in the results we get from our investments.

OUR STRATEGY

H

Help those tackling homelessness to access, understand and use evidence.

O

Optimise positive outcomes by being more experimental and directing funding to the practices and policies with the best evidence for long term impact.

M

Mobilise and support a cross-sector coalition of leaders who are strongly committed to invest in what works.

E

Empower by creating an environment that enables people with experiences of homelessness to be part of the conversation and approach.

How will we achieve our Mission?

Elevating standards

Applying standards of evidence to help create the necessary infrastructure to end homelessness more effectively.

Standards of evidence improve decision making by enabling different interventions to be compared, and by providing clarity in how confident we can be in what the evidence says. They will serve a vital development purpose - helping improve practices as well as the available evidence.

>> Standards of Evidence
>> SHARE Framework

Building reliable evidence

Synthesising existing knowledge and building the quality of the evidence on homelessness.

To ensure that the most effective solutions are available to the people working towards a future without homelessness, we are identifying gaps in our knowledge and analysing the different ways to tackle homelessness to identify what works and what doesn’t.

Implementation and mobilising change-makers

Supporting policymakers, independent funders, and practitioners committed to investing in what works through tools, resources and 121 help.

And hopefully by starting a movement that will lead to more and faster learning and experimentation so we can all move faster towards a future without homelessness.

Our Approach

As a centre, we’re trying to create a lean and agile organisation that’s got a strong learning agenda.

We’re not interested in producing reports or new research for the sake of it, we want to make sure that we’re doing everything we can to make our outputs, be it new evidence, tools, resources or networks – are as useful and accessible as possible to ensure maximum uptake and use. 

We’re also keen to learn and adopt as much as we can from others out there doing impactful work as well as collaborate with individuals and organisations that share our values and mission.If you're interested in working with us, get in touch at hello@homelessnessimpact.org.
