Homelessness and Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic Groups in the UK: A knowledge and capacity building programme.

Funded by the Oak Foundation and in partnership with Race on the Agenda, this major knowledge and capacity building programme will propel a fundamental step change in the UK evidence base on homelessness amongst people from Black, Asian and minority ethnic communities. 

Overseen by an expert research advisory group, the programme will offer a comprehensive, authoritative account of the overall statistical picture alongside rich qualitative evidence offering a ‘deep dive’ into key groups, issues and experience of concerns.  All of this with a view to shaping priorities, tools and levers for intervention that can be used to eliminate racial discrimination, disparities and injustices in the homelessness and housing field.   

In addition, the programme seeks to train and equip a new cohort of early career BAME researchers to drive forward progressive knowledge generation and policy and practice change in this field, and to establish and strengthen partnerships that can effectively communicate and advocate for change.
