Identifying and Reducing Homelessness

Added: (Mon Oct 30 2017)

Pressbox (Press Release) - Understanding ModernGov is pleased to announce a new date for our event ‘Identifying and Reducing Homelessness’, taking place in Central London on Tuesday 30th January.

Our Identifying and Reducing Homelessness course is crucially timed to prepare you for the Homelessness Reduction Act coming into force.

The Act places greater legal obligations on local authorities to reduce homelessness, including a new duty to prevent homelessness for all eligible applicants threatened with homelessness, regardless of priority need, and a new duty on public services to notify a local authority if they believe somebody is homeless or likely to become homeless.

With a greater focus on early intervention set out in the Act, this course provides you with guidance on effectively identifying those in most need and reducing the number of rough sleepers in your area.

This Identifying and Reducing Homelessness training course, led by Roger Barton, who has over 20 years’ experience in preventing homelessness, provides you with the necessary practical advice and support to develop strategies to reduce homelessness in your local area.

Also confirmed to speak at the event are:
• Kevin Hollingdrake MP
• Katri Wilson - Assistant Director Care & Support and Community Development, Origin Housing
• Alev Horgan - Head of Housing, Origin Housing
• Gillian Douglas - Head of Housing Options, Bristol City Council
