Nothing about us, without us: Lived experience participation in housing and homelessness

This project aims to investigate how lived experience participation can inform housing and homelessness policy and service design. The involvement of people with lived experience (PWLE) is gaining traction in areas like mental health, disability, alcohol and other drugs and healthcare. While there is interest in, and some exploration of, lived experience perspectives emerging in housing and homelessness, the field remains relatively unexplored and more importantly, policy and practice frameworks are yet to be developed and tested.
