Homelessness Studies Lab

Homelessness is an ongoing and growing challenge in the UK. Our ‘From Adversity to University’ project supports those who have been affected by homelessness to access higher education and professional development through a co-produced bridging module.

This bridging module is a result of working with homelessness charities and has received funding from, and are currently working with, the UPP Foundation.

For more information about the research centre or From Adversity to University project please email Becky Edwards on b.edwards@chi.ac.uk.
