Regional Leaders Forums

Exclusively for members, Homeless Link runs bi-annual Regional Leaders Forums.

At these forums, CEOs and senior leaders are invited to join their Homeless Link Partnership Manager to discuss emerging issues and themes in their region. These are hosted online, and provide a forum to share information, learn more about Homeless Link’s strategic priorities in the area, and gain support and assistance from peers.

Find out more by contacting the Partnership Manager for your region from the National Partnerships team.

The support received throughout the last 18 months from the leadership contexts of Homeless Link has been invaluable to me personally and to us as an organisation.
