Helen's current work includes health policy, welfare reform, and various projects to evaluate and evidence aspects of homelessness.

Helen's background is with frontline voluntary sector organisations in the homelessness sector, community development and adult learning. She has spent time on secondment to the Department of Health to review health commissioning for excluded groups.

"If I could change one thing about the homelessness sector...

...it would be to improve the way we share and use evidence in order to bring about change. I would like to see the views of people using homelessness services taken more seriously by policy-makers."
