This event will bring together representatives of the homelessness sector across England to examine the findings of this year’s The Homelessness Monitor: England 2018
Joseph Rowntree Foundations Head of Policy and Research, Brian Robson spoke at this event, which brought together representatives of the homelessness sector across England to examine the findings of this year’s The Homelessness Monitor: England 2018, a longitudinal study which monitors the impact on homelessness of recent economic and policy changes.
The research highlights emerging trends and forecasts some of the likely changes, identifying the developments likely to have the most significant impacts on homelessness in England. The event will be an opportunity to consider how the evidence can be used to influence future developments within the sector and government.
The lead authors provided a presentation of the main findings and implications of the report followed by the opportunity to discuss the findings and their impact on current and future policy and practice.
