In 1854 the physician, John Snow, traced the source of Cholera to a water supply in Broad Street Soho.

Until then all the focus was on treating Cholera, not preventing and cutting it off at the source.

Tackling Homeless Health 2020 is now applying the same lesson.

The government has legislated in the Homeless Reduction Act to create a duty on the institutional sources of homelessness – care leavers, prisoner discharge, military demob, hospital discharge.

But homelessness has other, less visible, causes. Mental health, domestic abuse, drug abuse, addiction, accidents, disability, chronic ill-health, family breakup.
Where do intelligent data led services identify these risks and tackle them at source – preventing homelessness?

In Scotland the government identified that the risk signals for knife crime often presented in previous episodes at A&E. The same is true for the increased risks of homelessness. Risk indicators are there in health data, episodes, patterns, if you look, and not just in A&E.

Homeless Health 2020 will show public services where to look in local services, in new data and present research and case studies to tackle homelessness.
The lesson that prevention is better than cure is still being learned in homeless works.
