About the event:

In 2018 the Government published its Rough Sleeping Strategy to address the growing numbers of people sleeping rough across the country. The strategy came with funding and a commitment to halve rough sleeping by 2022 and end it by 2027, identifying the core strands of prevention, intervention and recovery required to achieve this. 

This national conference, held in partnership with the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG), will explore the progress that has been made since the Rough Sleeping Strategy was announced and what can be done moving forward. We will examine recent figures for rough sleeping nationally, and look at new approaches and innovative case-studies from the Rough Sleeping Initiative (RSI) areas and other locations aiming to improve the picture. 

Speakers will include representatives from central and local government, frontline homelessness and supported housing providers, as well as specialists in mental health, substance misuse and the criminal justice system. 

This event is held in partnership:

Who is this event for:

Local authority and voluntary sector staff from RSI areas and elsewhere, working to reduce rough sleeping or supporting individuals at risk or currently sleeping rough. Delegates will depart with guidance and resources to help them support the varying and complex needs of those sleeping rough in their area and to reduce rough sleeping locally.
