What happens when a system is put under continued monetary pressure? How does it react and adapt to this strain? And what lessons emerge that can enable this system to recover?

This new research by Nicholas Pleace and Imogen Blood Associates for Riverside has collected first-hand accounts from people across the sector with extensive experience of commissioning and homelessness services. Analysing these through national and regional panels made up of people with lived and professional insight, the research uncovers the behaviour changes and necessary adaptations that are still shaping the provision of homelessness services.

Please join us and other leading voices in exploring and understanding the findings of this research and helping to shape the new homelessness commissioning landscape in efforts to end the homelessness crisis.
