Evaluation of the Homelessness Part of the Housing (Wales) Act 2014

We are currently undertaking a large scale longitudinal post-implementation evaluation to inform the Welsh Government’s understanding of the impact of the recent homelessness legislation. The evaluation utilises a mixed-methods approach, involving analysis of quantitative secondary data; a survey and review of all 22 Welsh local authorities; qualitative interviews with national stakeholders; and extensive engagement and consultation with service providers and service users in a selection of case study areas. This evaluation will be feeding directly into the Welsh Government’s future homelessness policy development.
