See Homeless Link: Health needs audit toolkit for instructions on starting an online audit.

With the right partners involved and the right approach, a Health Needs Audit will help you:

  • increase the evidence available about the health needs of people who are homeless and the wider determinants of their health
  • bring statutory and voluntary services together to develop responses to local priorities and address gaps in services
  • give people experiencing homelessness a stronger voice in local commissioning processes
  • help commissioners understand the effectiveness of their services
