Crisis launches invitation to tender for support with research into race and homelessness

In 2022 Crisis will be carrying out research into racial inequality, housing and homelessness. We are looking to commission support with completing this work, from someone who can:

  • Work with a panel of people with lived experience of homelessness and housing insecurity, to provide them with support and training during their involvement in this project, including stages such as research design and analysis.
  • Complete research recruitment and fieldwork alongside interested members of this panel, as well as Crisis staff.

Our research will investigate the lived experience of housing and homelessness among people with low incomes from Black, Asian and minoritised ethnic communities, and the relationship between such situations and systemic discrimination.

The contractor will have an essential role in helping us to ensure people with relevant lived experience in this area are empowered and supported during their involvement in the research, as well as providing additional support with conducting the research itself.
