Homeless Link: The Future Hostel – what do we know about how hostels can help end homelessness?

Homeless Link LogoThe role of hostels has come under the spotlight in recent months. The review into the future funding of supported housing has required Government and the sector to appraise how hostels are working across the country to help end people’s homelessness. The work currently being undertaken by the Rough Sleeping Taskforce, which will inform the Government’s new Rough Sleeping Strategy, has also brought attention to what has historically been one of the country’s core responses to homelessness.

Future Hostels Report

Our report, the Future Hostel, attempts to answer some of these questions. It draws on findings from ten in-depth case studies of hostels across England and analyses data from Homeless Link’s online database of homelessness services. It explores the range of approaches and interventions that are covered by the term “hostels,” and focuses on key principles, learning points, and best practice.
