In its 50th year, homelessness charity Crisis is developing a plan to end homelessness and, to inform this plan, Crisis have undertaken a wide-ranging evidence-gathering and consultation exercise, involving calls for evidence, reviews of evidence and input from people with lived experience of homelessness.

As part of this consultation, Crisis commissioned SCIE to produce this rapid evidence assessment to understand what services work, to address and end homelessness, and to assess the quality of evidence that exists in published studies.
