Role

We are looking for up to three new trustees, who are passionate about using data and evidence to tackle homelessness, and want to use their skills to help drive an organisation which could make a real impact on this challenge.

We believe that evidence informed policy-making and practice can, and does, improve the lives of people affected by homelessness. The Centre was created in 2018 to be an independent champion of using rigorous evidence to underpin policies and programmes that aim to tackle or prevent homelessness.

For the past eighteen months we have been hosted by our founding partners at Crisis and GHN and supported and guided by a Shadow Board, but last month the Centre celebrated becoming a fully independent charity and company.

We are looking for up to three members of our Board of Trustees who can help us steer the Centre in the right direction to achieve its ambitious goals and maximise the impact of its work. We ask that any candidates are passionate about the value of rigorous evidence, doing the most good possible with limited resources and committed to improving services for people affected by homelessness or at risk.
