Operating role model projects involve Commonweal providing the housing units to specialist partners in the fields of housing management, service provision and project evaluation, to create role model examples of solutions to social injustices. For intense focus of attention, these role models generally comprise of no more than 10 houses and projects can run for a period of up to ten years. However, the aim is to establish a proof of concept of a project within three years after which time, Commonweal leads two initiatives stemming from the proof of concept.

The first initiative is to encourage other organisations wherever appropriate (and this can be both in the UK and overseas) to replicate the proof of concept established by Commonweal. We help organisations to replicate our projects if required.

The second initiative involves using the evidence provided throughout our evaluation process to campaign for changes in public policy to resolve the social injustices.
