Can we end rough sleeping once and for all as we come out of lockdown?
This online session, hosted by the LGiU, will discuss strategies that attempt to help end homelessness on a permanent basis, as well as share best practice and ideas. As the UK starts to come out of lockdown, the opportunity must be grasped to try and end rough sleeping.
With an opportunity to hear from Dame Louise Casey and others, you can raise questions about your own area and learn about how to acquire properties – without any cost to your authority to support your most vulnerable in the community.
