The London Homelessness Social Impact Bond (SIB) is an innovative programme to support entrenched rough sleepers. It was designed to bring new finance and new ways of working to improve the outcomes for a cohort of rough sleepers whose needs were not being met by existing services and who were not being targeted by other interventions. The SIB is a three year programme and delivery began in November 2012.
This is the second report from the qualitative evaluation. It is based on interviews with stakeholders and homeless people in receipt of support and a review of available performance data (to end of July 2014). An economic impact evaluation is being undertaken internally by the Department of Communities and Local Government (DCLG).
