Centre for Homelessness and Inclusion Health

The Centre for Homelessness and Inclusion Health (CHIH) is a collaboration between the University of Edinburgh and local partners in Scotland to improve the health and wellbeing of people who experience homelessness.

About us

This collaboration is an exciting initiative to bring together people with lived experience of homelessness, those working in the NHS, third sector, policy, local government and academia to work together to develop learning, teaching and research to improve the health and wellbeing of people who experience the worst health outcomes in society. The Centre for Homelessness and Inclusion Health (The Centre) was established in 2017 and since then, we have built up strong partnerships working across a range of different homelessness organisation in the city.  We have increased our understanding of different perspectives - including those of people with lived experience of homelessness - and developed a clear vision of how we can work together to make a difference.
