Broadway's research and evaluation projects focus on improving and developing services for homeless and vulnerable people. The team uses a range of methodologies including:
- Data analysis
To increase the quality of our research, people who have experienced homelessness themselves are involved in the design and delivery of projects wherever possible. Research is informed by Broadway's experience of service delivery and of managing information from CHAIN and the Clearing House.
Broadway delivers a range of projects - some are grant funded and others are commissioned.
