Homeless Link report highlights the power of the HF model

The GMHF Partnership has played a key part in Homeless Link's latest report into the Housing First model - entitled "Research exploring holistic Housing First outcomes."

Homeless Link, in partnership with Expert Link, carried out research to understand the longer-term impacts of Housing First across a wide range of different areas of someone’s life.

The main aim of this research is to fill in this evidence gap and investigate how long-term, multi-year engagement with Housing First impacts on wider outcomes such as physical and mental health, offending behaviour, substance use, social networks, employment and training, engagement with meaningful activities and more.

Using a combination of survey data, individual data, and peer research with people with lived experience of Housing First, this report, entitled More Than a Roof, sets out the findings and recommendations from the research.
