HELP THE AGED IS running a six‐year campaign to improve service provision for older homeless people. The charity has developed a programme of user‐focused action research within individual projects funded by the charity and undertaken by practitioners working in partnership with the Help the Aged Research Officer. The action research programme aims to make improvements in practice by involving the users of services in the development and evaluation of services. Participants have identified areas of unmet need and gaps in service provision and action is being taken to resolve these problems.
