Ending rough sleeping: what works?

This study demonstrates what works to end homelessness for rough sleepers through an international evidence review. The ongoing need for people to sleep rough on the streets of the UK is indicative of an unacceptable societal failure and recent homelessness projections suggest that the scale of the issue is worsening. Ending rough sleeping is an increasing policy priority across the UK.

Crisis commissioned the UK Collaborative Centre for Housing Evidence, Cardiff University and Heriot-Watt University to undertake an international evidence review of what works to end rough sleeping.
