Housing First research presented to New Zealand Centre for Sustainable Cities

17 February 2020

Researchers Carole McMinn (The People’s Project) and Brodie Fraser, Clare Aspinall, Jenny Ombler and Dr Nevil Pierse (University of Otago) recently presented findings of the Ending Homelessness in New Zealand research programme to members of the New Zealand centre for Sustainable Cities. The presentation focused on different aspects of homelessness in New Zealand and the five-year research programme’s current findings. The research is a partnership between the Universities of Otago and Waikato, and The People’s Project. The main purpose of the research is to look at the provision of Housing First in New Zealand and consider how the model fits into the unique New Zealand context, and to evaluate the outcomes and life courses for people who have been housed in Hamilton by The People’s Project.
