Policy Fellows Programme

Overview

The CaCHE Policy Fellows Programme is designed to provide senior and mid-career civil servants and policy/practice professionals an opportunity to explore areas of interest and to gain insight into the latest academic evidence. Facilitated by the CaCHE Knowledge Exchange team, Policy Fellows will attend a one-day visit to an institution from within the CaCHE consortium where they will have a series of one-to-one meetings with key academics. This placement will help Policy Fellows to develop a better understanding of key issues, challenges and evidence-based solutions to tackling housing-related policy and practice issues. Following the meetings, Policy Fellows will have the opportunity to produce a CaCHE output, which can focus on a particular housing challenge that has been explored, or on the process of engaging with academia. CaCHE support will be offered to help frame and produce this.
