Emma Bimpson

Emma Bimpson is a Research Associate with the Collaborative Centre for Housing Evidence (CaCHE), based in the University of Sheffield's Urban Studies and Planning department. Her recent PhD research explores transformations in housing and social support services that have taken place under programmes of austerity, localism, and marketisation in England. This research combines literature around the political economy of housing and welfare, with wider debates taking place within social care. Emma's recent work has focused on homelessness services and the evolving role of social and private landlords within local welfare systems and builds on prior experience as a practitioner within social and supported housing services.
