The New Centre for Homelessness Impact to Launch Spring 2018
The UK-based Centre for Homelessness Impact is off the ground! The Centre will be headed by Dr Lígia Teixeira, formerly Head of Research and Evaluation at Crisis. The Centre is taking on the task of assessing and utilizing research, a sometimes challenging task for policy-makers, commissioners, and practitioners, to help drive solutions to homelessness. As a long term goal, Teixeira and her colleagues hope to ensure that robust evidence be embedded in the design and implementation of homelessness policy. They look forward to fully launch the New Centre in spring of 2018.
“Careful research and evaluation may not end homelessness on its own, but we believe it has a crucial role to play in responding to this challenge, and increasing the effectiveness of policy making and practice,” stated Teixeira.
