Housing First evaluation
IES is leading the analysis of administrative data for the Housing First evaluation. Pilot projects running in Liverpool City Region, Greater Manchester and the West Midlands seek to place rough sleepers in long-term accommodation, while providing them with expert support to rebuild their lives. This includes support aimed at labour market participation. IES will analyse linked data from benefits, health and offending datasets to assess outcomes for programme participants. This will supplement wider evaluation activities includinga bespoke survey of HF participants and a cost-benefit analysis.
