Join us for our online Homelessness Symposium 2021

We are delighted to announce this year's Homelessness Symposium, which will take place online on Thursday 9th December. We have a fantastic line-up of sector leaders, researchers and policy makers, who will provide insight into the latest developments, research and good practice within Wales, the UK and across the world. 

The morning session will focus on homelessness in Wales, with key Welsh Government officials providing a timely update on the Ending Homelessness Action Plan and outlining how the housing sector can contribute to achieving the objectives within the Race Equality Action Plan. This will be followed by an exclusive session led by Crisis CEO Jon Sparkes, during which Professor Suzanne Fitzpatrick and Professor Glen Bramley will share the findings from Crisis' soon-to-be-published Homelessness Monitor for Wales.

In the afternoon we will go beyond the Welsh border and hear from Ron Anderson of the Centre for Homelessness Impact, who will share the latest development from the What Works Community, which is supporting local authorities across the UK to tackle their toughest homelessness challenges. We are also delighted to be hearing from the Lydia Stazen, the Director of the Institute for Global Homelessness, who will be speaking from Chicago about IGH's Vanguard Cities project, which seeks to make a meaningful impact on street homelessness in cities across the globe.
