Homelessness is a major problem and it is getting worse. Various interventions exist for when people have hit crisis point but far more could be done to prevent people falling into homelessness in the first place.
Hacking Homelessness supports housing associations to reduce their homelessness footprint by using data to intervene earlier to avoid evictions.
It is a shared data platform that through a series of algorithms, raises a flag if a tenant at risk of eviction. This will allow housing associations to make smart interventions before people hit crisis point, significantly reducing evictions.
