From Homeless to Housed: An opportunity to share common challenges, positive practice, and shared solutions
13 December, Grassmarket Centre, Edinburgh
35,000 households found themselves without a home last year and presented to their local authority for help, often facing long waits in temporary accommodation. Many more are struggling, but are not represented by statistics.
Over the last year, individuals, organisations, and politicians reached a consensus: we can and will do better for people experiencing or threatened with homelessness.
From Homeless to Housed is a learning and networking event which brings together a range of experts in homelessness policy and lived experience to explore the latest developments in understanding and tackling homelessness.
The event provides an opportunity for housing association teams to share common challenges, positive practice, and shared solutions. Through a combination of key note and world café sessions, delegates will have the chance to learn about thinking and challenges relating to homelessness and the people it affects.
Join colleagues from across Scotland to hear the latest developments in relation to Rapid Rehousing Transition Plans and developing a trauma-informed workforce. Housing professionals on the front line, housing managers, allocations officers, tenancy sustainment officers, rent collection officers, arrears officers, and housing management officers can all benefit from attending this event.
The event takes place on the 13 December at the Grassmarket Centre in Edinburgh - an award-winning, city centre location and social enterprise project within the heart of Edinburgh’s Grassmarket, nestled at the foot of Candlemaker Row and offering easy access from all major transport links.
Delegate places start at £219 for SFHA members and £299 for non-members. The fee includes attendance, lunch and all refreshments.
