UK Collaborative Centre for Housing Evidence (CaCHE)



The centre, which was established in August 2017, is a multidisciplinary partnership between academia, housing policy and practice.

The UK Collaborative Centre for Housing Evidence [CaCHE] has been funded by the TDS Charitable Foundation and the SafeDeposits Scotland Charitable Trust to undertake a broad and diverse programme of research on issues relating to developments in, and operation of, the UK private rented sector. The broad objective of the programme is to contribute to improving standards in the sector. This aligns with the key charitable objective of both the TDS Charitable Foundation and SafeDeposits Scotland Charitable Trust to raise standards in the private rented sector by advancing education on housing rights and obligations.

Over the course of the three-year programme, CaCHE researchers will produce evidence and new research which will contribute to tackling the UK’s housing problems at a national, devolved, regional and local level.
