Part 2 of the Housing Act (Wales) 2014 introduced major changes to the way homelessness is being addressed in Wales (from April 2015).

The core changes were aimed at extending services to include prevention of homelessness and providing assistance to all eligible applicants. A longitudinal post-implementation evaluation of this part of the Act is now underway, which focuses on both process and impact.

This interim reports provides detailed findings on the first wave of fieldwork. Research was undertaken with organisations supporting people at risk of homelessness, as well as those at risk of homelessness.
