The homeless population is one of the most studied in the field of social exclusion. We know more than enough about the problem of homelessness and its associated demographics, but not enough about what to do. Crisis' new solutions research programme aims to encourage that new thinking, with proposals for a new national homelessness strategy and reports on prevention, the links between housing and support, innovative approaches to street crime, failing hostels and the threat of zero tolerance.
