Housing First Is Only Part Of The Solution To Ending Homelessness

“Housing First is highly effective in ending homelessness among people with high and complex needs, but it does not constitute a solution to single homelessness, or rough sleeping, in itself” according to a new report by the University of York, commissioned by St Mungo’s. The report, ‘Using Housing First in Integrated Homelessness Strategies: a review of the evidence’ is by Professor Nicholas Pleace, of the Centre for Housing Policy at the University of York. He finds that “international evidence shows that Housing First services need to be a part of an integrated homelessness strategy to be truly effective.” Read more on the St Mungos website.
