Local study visits are an important tool for providing a visual support for on-paper strategies. Seeing a project in action and talking to people who are directly involved in designing and implementing the policy and homeless services can help others to design their own local homeless strategy. Facilitating direct contact between local authority practitioners allows the sharing of working methods.
