Change the frame: a project about journeys out of homelessness

About the project

Change the frame describes a two year project led by Iriss in collaboration with a range of partners to explore homelessness in Scotland.

The project, led by Rikke Iversholt and Ellen Daly, had two distinct phases. The first phase (Pathways and Prevention), which ran during 2014-15, focused on perceptions of and approaches to innovation in homelessness prevention. Based on the learning from this, the second phase, in 2015-16, focused on peer approaches where people with lived experience of homelessness undertake roles to help others affected by it.ย  In phase two, the project team included a person with lived experience of homelessness.

This website draws together a range of resources developed through both project phases including case studies, personal stories of lived experience, an evidence summary, key messages from field research, audio recorded discussions, and guidelines for designing services which include peer approaches.

Grateful thanks to all those who were involved in the project and worked with us to develop ideas, bring people together, capture learning and share experiences.
