Strategic Housing Month: New approaches to tackling homelessness

Part of Strategic Housing Month

Virtual Workshop

As the UK attempts to emerge from the Covid-19 pandemic, homelessness will continue to be a national crisis. Despite numerous government initiatives and the success of the ‘Everyone In’ scheme during the first lockdown, numbers are still on the increase. More than 70,000 households across the UK have been made homeless since the start of the pandemic while tens of thousands more were threatened with the homeless despite the government ban on evictions. 

This session will explore new patterns of homelessness, new initiatives and new organisational approaches as we continue to look for a sustainable, long-term solution.

Confirmed speakers:

  • Chair: Emma Lindley, Housing Strategy Lead Officer, Ashfield District Council and HQN associate
  • Keynote speaker: Molly Bishop, Strategic Lead for Homelessness, Greater Manchester Combined Authority.
