The impact of voluntary out of area moves on housing security
We are currently conducting an evaluation of the Homefinder UK intervention, which offers a voluntary out of area mobility support service. The service works with people at risk of or experiencing housing insecurity to move from areas with high housing demand to areas with lower housing demand. We are conducting a randomised controlled trial to understand how receiving the Homefinder UK intervention impacts housing security, social connectedness, mental health, physical health, access to services and contact with the justice system and employment. The evaluation is being funded by the Centre for Homelessness Impact.
