Housing and support - new resources to support informed decision-making by commissioners and providers

Alongside a group of partner organisations, we have been working on several research projects around housing services. We want to gain a better understanding of what matters to individuals and families in terms of their housing and support, producing evidence to support more informed decision-making by commissioners in this area.

These three sets of resources are the result of a crowdfunded research project exploring what is important to different groups in terms of housing decisions.

Many thanks to the funders whose generous support enabled this work.
