Crisis ‘Have Your Say’ call for written evidence – plan to end homelessness.

As part of their 50th anniversary year, Crisis are developing a plan to end homelessness in Britain. In order to do this, they are running a major consultation across Britain to gather the evidence and opinions of those who know homelessness and related issues best.

The call for written evidence is one element of a wider consultation which will also include workshops and seminars to explore the problems and a range of solutions in more detail. The consultation addresses three key questions:

  • How can people be prevented from becoming homeless in the first place?
  • How can we design more effective rapid responses for people who have become homeless?
  • How can we create permanent solutions for people who need some form of ongoing support?

How to respond

You can respond to the call for written evidence via survey monkey here.

The survey has been divided into key areas: mainstream housing; homelessness accommodation; rough sleeping; Housing Options and advice services; employment; health; education; social services; justice; and benefits and Universal Credit.

Please complete the sections which are most relevant to your work and experience. There is no requirement to complete all the sections. We are really keen to gather as much evidence as possible on interventions that can help us end homelessness, so please include any information evidencing their effectiveness. In addition to completing the questionnaire, if there are any further documents that you want to submit for consideration (case studies, evaluations, reports, personal testimonies or suggested ideas for change) please email these to

Information collected as part of this survey will be used to help Crisis develop the plan to end homelessness, which will launch in spring 2018. We will seek to include ideas and solutions which are supported by a strong evidence base and align with Crisis’ core values in working to end homelessness.

The survey will close on 18th October.
