CaCHE Director Ken Gibb added: ‘We see this new partnership as another step connecting academia, policy and practice, and as a great way to continue sharing the latest evidence and data to the sector.’

HSA Chair Beth Watts commented: ‘The HSA aims to promote the study and understand of housing and build links between housing researchers and professionals. We’re delighted to be partners with HQN on Evidence, which provides a key point of dialogue between robust research and practice within the housing sector.’
