Hannah Bailey, PhD candidate and Housing and Communities Research Group member has been shortlisted for the William Sutton Prize for Social Innovation for her "Insightful allocations – understanding, applying and measuring new insights from the psychology of poverty." 

Hannah's idea is to "Utilise insights from the psychology of poverty to design an empathetic allocation process. The aim is to put the heart back into allocations, to build relationships with new tenants and staff that result in sustainable tenancies, designing impact measures and training to scale the approach."
