The publication of research is an important part of our work. We commission a wide range of research into various aspects of homelessness within the context of our Action Plans. Remember, we also have an extensive library which you can visit in person.
In addressing the need to have a clear and coherent approach to Care and Case Management, the Homeless Agency Partnership and the Progression Routes Initiative combined their efforts in order to pilot a case management system in selected homeless and drug related service provision. A strong rationale for the implementation of a standardised case management system in both homeless and drug services does indeed exist and this report provides a clear evidence base for such an approach and for the need to mainstream the learning to date. On the basis of a significant amount of effort on the part of both service providers and staff working in the drug and homeless sector, we can extend a simple and clear message which is – care and case management works!
