Independent evaluation of Shelter Children’s Services
Shelter piloted a programme of children’s services between 2007 and 2011, in some of the most deprived areas of England and Scotland. The programme aimed to prevent homelessness amongst families, children and young people, improve the outcomes for children experiencing homelessness and raise national policy awareness of, and responses to, the impact of homelessness on children's lives. Researchers from TSRC at the University of Birmingham carried out an independent longitudinal evaluation of this programme between 2007 and 2011. The final report summarises research findings over a four-year period.
