With rising numbers of people sleeping rough or facing life without a home, the services of homelessness and supported housing providers are needed more than ever. This event will guide you through the challenges and share collaborative responses that can help you to tackle rough sleeping and homelessness locally. As staff who work in supported housing, hostels, day centres and as part of outreach teams you are being asked to support individuals with increasingly complex and diverse issues. Across the two days, this conference will provide you with new resources to be able to respond to these changing needs.

Under One Roof will cover a wide range of topics that affect accommodation, support and care provision. It will bring together supported housing and homelessness services to share innovative approaches, policy updates and insights into the future of service provision, and will feature different strands, tailored for frontline workers, managers and leaders. 

We would like to thank Access Insurance for supporting the event.
