Joseph Rowntree Foundation: Housing and Poverty – expressions of interest (stage 1)





Preventing, mitigating and reducing poverty in a dynamic housing market context
This flagship project forms a key part of Joseph Rowntree Foundation’s Housing and Poverty programme.
The programme aims to set out credible policy and practice approaches to delivering more effective housing responses to those living in poverty in the UK.

Further Information:
This call for a qualitative and longitudinal Housing and Poverty flagship study aims to answer two key questions:
1. How do the dynamics of households’ housing circumstances affect their experience of poverty at different stages in their life course?
2. What housing (or directly housing related) policy and practice actions would improve household outcomes by better preventing, mitigating or reducing poverty at different stages in people’s life course?

At this stage, we are seeking expressions of interest only.
Expressions of interest in this project must be clear both how they would meet the methodological challenges presented by these questions and how they will move from the study’s findings to credible policy responses across the spectrum of national, local, neighbourhood or organisational levels, as well as the urban/rural divide.

We plan to shortlist a maximum of six expressions of interest which will then be invited to submit a full proposal.

Deadline: 30 June 2014, 23:59 hours
The budget: £300,000 (including VAT and expenses) one project only
Timescale: 24 months, negotiable and subject to satisfactory completion of interim stages.
