Research Hub

Research has been an integral part of Launch Housing’s work since the inception of the former Hanover Welfare Services in 1963.

In 1991, the organisation established a dedicated research unit to investigate the issues of homelessness and enable the organisation to advocate more strongly on behalf of people experiencing homelessness.

The formidable body of research evidence generated since that time, independently and in partnership with universities, government and community sector, has been characterised by seminal pieces of work on families and children, employment, education and training, alcohol and drug use, human rights and citizenship, community perceptions and attitudes, and structural drivers of homelessness.
