The Northern Homelessness Network is a free network for NHC members for those working in the area of Homelessness, to share learning, discuss challenges and hear from others across the sector in how they are tackling homelessness.

The next Northern Homelessness network meeting has been scheduled for Tuesday 24th September from 1.30-3.30pm at Wakefield Suite, Wakefield One, Burton Street, Wakefield, WF1 2EB.  If everyone comes into Reception and reports in, the Wakefield Suite is just behind so easily navigated.

Parking instructions below:

The one on Northgate but has a 4 hour maximum parking period.  Gills Yard and Rishworth Street have 10 hour parking.  Rishworth Street tends to get full quite early but people might be lucky.  All these car parks are less than 5 minutes walk from Wakefield One.

Merchantgate car park is right next to Westgate railway station and has loads of room for long stay.  This is probably the easiest to guarantee a parking spot.
