We heard presentations and discussion from panel members, including:
Jennie Corbett, Homeless Link Senior Policy Manager
Gill Taylor, Strategic Lead for Single Homelessness & Vulnerable Adults at Haringey Council
Denise McDowell, Chief Executive of Greater Manchester Immigration Aid Unit
One of NACCOM’s Community Researchers with lived experience of homelessness and immigration control
Our research over the past year - facilitated by our local authority project partners Bedford Council, Haringey Council and Manchester City Council - distilled lessons from the COVID-19 pandemic and pre-existing good practice, and identified the blockages in national policy that are obstructing progress. The event presented policy and practice recommendations that will work beyond COVID-19 to find better solutions for this group.
