Morgan Sindall Property Services (MSPS) have pledged their support to the Chartered Institute of Housing (CIH) Homeful campaign by funding a research assistant to join the Homeful project team.
The Homeful campaign, led by CIH president Jo Richardson involves an action research project exploring housing-led approaches to resolve and prevent all forms of homelessness across the UK.
The research assistant role, which is funded through grants from MSPS, Longhurst Group and Home Group will support on project management, data collection and findings analysis of the Homeful action research project. This role will be integral in delivering insight on the issue of homelessness and how it can be addressed in the UK.
Jo Richardson, President, CIH said: “I would like to say a massive thank you to Morgan Sindall Property Services for providing grant funding which has enabled recruitment of a research assistant.
“With the work of Homeful we have a chance for CIH members, social housing organisations and networks, people experiencing homelessness, residents, charities, and agencies to come together to produce the most complete evidence base of what works across the sector in the UK. We will learn as we do – and do as we learn – and the role of the research assistant will be an essential part of this. Together, we can – and will – seek to end homelessness for good.”
Anneka Gill, Head of Transformation at Morgan Sindall Property Services said: “We are delighted to show our commitment to this project, which will provide pivotal insights into how we can work together to resolve and prevent homelessness.
“Collaborating with organisations across the industry can create sustainable solutions and strengthen the impact we have in tackling this issue.
“By contributing to this research role, we will support the development of housing-led solutions to homelessness and show what is possible when we come together to support our communities.”

About the Homeful Campaign
The Homeful campaign seeks to build on the success of the pandemic response by engaging with housing and other agencies to collate and share evidence and support for housing-led solutions to homelessness and rough sleeping.
The action research campaign begins in September 2021 and concludes by December 2022. Its goal is to include as many housing providers, homeless organisations, partner agencies, charities, service users and people who have experienced homelessness across the UK as possible.
Homeful provides an opportunity for organisations and individuals to connect together across the UK to help each other through peer learning. Findings and recommendations will be published at the end of the action research campaign.
