Homeless health projects achieve lasting benefits

The Queen’s Nursing Institute has published an evaluation of the ten nurse-led homeless health projects that were funded in partnership with the charity Oak Foundation in 2018.

The projects benefited people who were experiencing homelessness or who were living in vulnerable or temporary housing, including recent migrants, street homeless, people in custody, and Gypsy, Roma and Traveller populations. All of these groups experience a range of health inequalities that can be severe and life-threatening. The ten projects – which received up to £5000 per project - were all led by community nurses working in different parts of England, with projects taking place in London and the southeast, the Midlands, the northwest and the southwest.
