Partnership brings research evidence to practitioners


The UK Collaborative Centre for Housing Evidence (CaCHE), Housing Studies Association (HSA) and Housing Quality Network (HQN) are delighted to announce their new partnership to produce the HQN research newsletter, Evidence.

Support from CaCHE and the HSA, together with collaboration on the content, will enable the HQN newsletter to thrive in the coming years, bringing news of housing research directly to professionals who can use it.

HQN CEO Alistair McIntosh said: “Making decisions based on evidence is vital. Having the latest housing research knowledge available is key to improving practice and performance across the sector. We are delighted to have CaCHE and the HSA working with us on this project.”

CaCHE Director Ken Gibb added: “We see this new partnership as another step connecting academia, policy and practice, and as a great way to continue sharing the latest evidence and data to the sector.”

HSA Chair Beth Watts commented: “The HSA aims to promote the study and understand of housing and build links between housing researchers and professionals. We’re delighted to be partners with HQN on Evidence, which provides a key point of dialogue between robust research and practice within the housing sector.”

Now published as a supplement in HQN’s magazine, The Governor, Evidence has run continuously for six years under editor Janis Bright, and is freely available to download from the HQN website.

Look out for the latest edition which will be published later this month.
