This NHC and Crisis FREE member roundtable will enable housing practitioners and policy makers to hear about emerging practice in tackling the barriers that restrict homeless people’s access to social housing. Attendees also have the chance to discuss how to respond effectively to recent rises in single homelessness and rough sleeping.

With the Homelessness Reduction Act due to come into effect in April 2018, councils are considering how to expand housing options for single homeless people, while housing providers have a key role to play in providing housing solutions.

The Crisis report ‘Moving On’ , highlights the scale of single homelessness in England and the allocations and affordability barriers single homeless people face in accessing the declining supply of social housing.

The NHC in conjunction with Crisis will bring together NHC members, policy makers and practitioners from local authorities, housing providers, and the homeless sector to consider:

  • crisis policy recommendations on tackling the barriers single homeless people face in gaining access to mainstream social housing.
  • innovations in practice being delivered by NHC members and others across the sector.
  • how to extend best practice and tackle barriers to change.
  • opportunities to network.
