About the event

With general agreement nationally that homelessness should be eradicated, how can we ensure this is a truly achievable goal? This annual national conference will look at what changes and new ways of working should be place, in our sector and more widely, to ensure homelessness ceases to be an expected part of the picture.

The two-day programme will include plenary sessions and workshops covering current and emerging good practice, recent legislation, and innovative approaches to supporting people experiencing or at risk of homelessness.  Sessions will cover a wide range of topics including supporting those with multiple and complex disadvantage and championing positive change to ensure early prevention.

The flagship event provides the ideal opportunity for delegates to network with colleagues and learn from one another. Leaders, managers and frontline workers will gain resources and guidance needed to play their part in tackling rough sleeping and homelessness.

What you can expect

  • Discuss new ideas and ways of tackling the issues that you are facing day to day
  • Engage in debates on the issues that are hitting the sector hardest
  • Network and share concerns with your peers and make new contacts for the future
  • Celebrate the effective work of the sector at the Homeless Link Excellence Awards dinner
  • Browse the stalls and gain ideas in our social enterprise market place

Homeless Link Excellence Awards

Social enterprise market place
