    Available open access under CC-BY-NC license. Homelessness is unequivocally devastating. In the UK, people affected by homelessness are ten times more likely to die than their peers in the general population, yet we still miss important opportunities to adequately address the issue.

    The Centre for Homelessness Impact brings together this urgent book gathering the insights and experiences of leaders in government, academia and the third sector to present new evidence-based strategies to end homelessness.

    Demonstrating why and how a new movement is needed that embraces data and evidence as integral to ending homelessness effectively, this book provides crucial methods to underpin future policy, practice and funding decisions.

    Dr Lígia Teixeira is the Chief Executive of the Centre for Homelessness Impact. She was previously Head of Research and Evaluation at Crisis, where for nine years she led the organisation's evidence programme—growing its scale and impact into one of the largest and most influential in the UK and internationally.

    James Cartwright is an Editorial and Engagement Associate at the Centre for Homelessness Impact.
