THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
This seminar will address the next steps for tackling homelessness in England, as well as the key issues for the implementation of Government’s homelessness policy.
It will bring together policymakers with key stakeholders from local authorities, housing associations, charities, law firms, and landlord and tenant representative bodies, as well as referring bodies in the policing, education and health sectors.
Delegates will discuss the launch of the Rough Sleeping Strategy, as well as the work of the Homelessness Reduction Taskforce, the roll out of Housing First pilot schemes in Manchester, Liverpool and the West Midlands, and challenges facing local authorities and public authorities in meeting the statutory duties from the Homelessness Reduction Act.
Further sessions will look at dealing with mental health and substance misuse, best practice to end rough sleeping with UK and international case studies, and issues around assessing the success of policy outcomes.
