Housing Cost Calculator Masterclass

Capacity Building

This masterclass with our Head of Evidence and Data will show you how to get the best results from CHI's Housing Costs Calculator.

As part of the UK’s response to COVID-19, more than 16,000 people experiencing street homelessness have been offered self-contained temporary accommodation to safely self-isolate during the pandemic across the UK. Whilst the approach varied from authority to authority, and across UK nations, most were allocated emergency accommodation in hotels. Our housing costs calculator helps city leaders in the UK quickly consider their population, their needs, and assess the costs of settled housing options.

This session will bring together people who have already used the tool - and those interested to utilise this modelling - to understand more about the design of this product and with the aim to :

  1. Understand the logic behind the calculations and the methodology used
  2. Hear about a large scale case study it has been applied to
  3. Discuss with other users how they are utilising the data in their own scenario
  4. Contribute to the ongoing updates to the design of the calculator
