The homelessness monitor

About the research

This research is carried out by Suzanne Fitzpatrick, Glen Bramley and Beth Watts at Heriot-Watt University, Steve Wilcox at the University of York, and Hal Pawson at the University of New South Wales.

The homelessness monitor is a longitudinal study, funded by Crisis and the Joseph Rowntree Foundation, providing an independent analysis of the homelessness impacts of recent economic and policy developments in the UK.

The key areas of interest are the impact on homelessness and housing of:

  • The post-2007 economic and housing market recession and subsequent recovery
  • Welfare reforms and public expenditure cutbacks being pursued by the UK Government post 2010  
  • Other relevant policies of both the UK Government and the devolved administrations in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland
