Event description
Using Evidence to End Homelessness: how the homelessness sector can better help people experiencing homelessness.

About this Event

Join us at the launch of our new book to hear how new approaches to data and evidence could transform the way we help people experiencing homelessness from leaders across government, academia and the third sector.

Note: We have taken the decision to change the format of the various launch events for Using Evidence to End Homelessness. These will now be online-only events and open to everyone.

The Centre for Homelessness Impact invites you to celebrate the launch of Using Evidence to End Homelessness, an urgent book edited by the Centre for Homelessness Impact and published by Policy Press gathering the insights of leaders in government, academia and the third sector to present new evidence-based strategies to end homelessness. Contributors advocate for a new movement that embraces data and evidence to end homelessness sustainably, providing crucial methods to underpin future policy, practice and funding decisions.

Governments across the UK have already signalled a willingness to improve how evidence and data is used to improve results, and the Centre for Homelessness Impact launched in 2018 to act as a catalyst for ongoing efforts.

Changing the way the system works is a complex challenge, but Using Evidence to End Homelessness shows how it might be done in a bipartisan, effective and practical way, asking how we might achieve better outcomes for people affected by homelessness and offering a roadmap for doing so. It sets out ways to capitalise on and embed any change so it is long lasting and sets the course for better homelessness policy and practice.

At the three events we will hear from a range of book contributors and focus on three themes: opportunities for data, understanding what works and empowering local evidence use.

Join us on:

April 29 — 14:00 - 15:00

May 14 — 14:00 - 15:00

May 21 — 14:00 - 15:00

While we will miss the proximity of real-world events, we see this as an opportunity to trial new ways of coming together. For the time being, we’d ask you all to keep signing up to our Eventbrite and keep an eye out for updates as the situation progresses.
