Our Projects

Home Our Projects

We work with partners to test and develop ideas to provide housing solutions to social injustice, providing housing knowledge and action learning expertise.

Our partners are the experts in their policy areas, and we are proud to support them and their projects with our unique knowledge and expertise. This means we get to work across a broad range of different topics and social injustices. Take a look at some examples below.
