Homelessness in 2020 - A showcase of our sector's contribution during COVID-19

A recording of this event will be available following the day.

Thursday, 10 December 2020
Free online event | 4pm-5:30pm

Our Homelessness in 2020 event will be a chance to reflect on the last nine months and celebrate the great contribution of the homelessness and supported housing sectors.

2020 has been a very difficult year for many; particularly for those already facing additional challenges in life.  Homelessness services have stepped up to ensure the people they work with have been kept safe and supported during this unprecedented time. Whilst at Homeless Link we have made supporting our members through this a priority; adapting our ways of working and delivering grants, projects and events we hadn’t originally planned for. 

This event will recognise and celebrate the exceptional contributions these services have made during the Covid-19 pandemic and announce the winners of the Homeless Link Excellence awards. It will also provide an opportunity for you to ​hear about Homeless Link’s work over the last year, where we have focused our attention and why. You will have the chance to ask us questions and get an insight into what we have planned for 2021.

Taking place over Zoom, the awards ceremony will be hosted by Homeless Link’s CEO Rick Henderson and Head of Member Services Kate Alaway. You will hear about the great practice that’s happening, celebrate with our winners, and hear from some very special guests.

This event is for everyone in the homelessness and supported housing sectors, those who have been shortlisted for an award and their colleagues. Let’s get together to see how far we have come this year, and recognise the hard work and achievements of the sector.

About the awards

Chosen from the Excellence awards shortlist, the winner of each award category will have their service filmed. This short film will then be shareable on social media, with funders and strategic partners to showcase their award winning work. They will also receive a trophy and a certificate. The runners up will each receive a certificate.
