Our annual two-day Leadership Summit provides leaders in our sector with the time and space needed to reflect on the past year and strategise for times ahead, presenting the opportunity to learn from expert speakers as well as one another.

In an increasingly challenging environment, maintaining a sustainable organisation requires resilience and innovation. This year's Summit will explore what leaders and organisations need to navigate these challenges and seize emerging opportunities.

The Summit includes keynote speakers, a choice of breakout sessions, and plenty of time for sharing of knowledge and experience, as well as a networking dinner to round off the first day.


We'll be welcoming delegates from 9.30am on Wednesday 4th December and will have refreshments available. To allow for travel, sessions will start at 10.30am on the first day, and the Summit will finish at 3.30pm on Thursday 5th December.

Who should attend?

This event is for CEOs and senior management of charitable organisations in the homelessness or supported housing sector.


The Welcombe Hotel
Warwick Rd
CV37 0NR

The Welcombe Hotel is Neo-Jacobean country mansion outside of Stratford-Upon-Avon, surrounded by beautiful landscaped gardens.

The event will be held under the Chatham House Rule to allow attendees to network and share information freely, while the secluded location provides an opportunity to be truly immersed in learning and peer support.

Between sessions delegates can enjoy a drink in the historic bar, walk the beautiful landscaped grounds, or unwind in the hotel's swimming pool and spa.

Loved the time to get away and reflect, as well as learn loads. I'm looking forward to bringing more of my team next year!
There was a really inclusive and vibrant atmosphere at the event!
Really well organised; very relaxed but still very work focused. I thoroughly enjoyed it and, because it was so beneficial, I felt less guilty about taking the time out of the workplace!
Valuable quality time away from the office, personal space to reflect, learn and be inspired by others with a wealth of knowledge and experience in the sector. Thank you, I will be back next year!
