The Coronavirus pandemic has created unprecedented challenges for those working with the homeless. But – as the success of the “Everyone In” programme shows – it also offers unprecedented opportunities.
Over the course of two webinars, Mark Prichard (an independent consultant and trainer who specialises in homelessness) and Justin Bates (Landmark barrister, Deputy General Editor of the Encyclopedia of Housing Law and the co-author of Homelessness and Allocations) will explore the impact of the pandemic on statutory homelessness services under Part 7, Housing Act 1996.
The webinar is aimed at local government officers, lawyers (both in local authorities and acting for the homeless) and policy makers.
**Participation is free of charge however, advance registration is required. Please note that participants will receive the joining instructions by email prior to the webinar. If you have any queries regarding this event please email firstname.lastname@example.org.**
