Homes for Cathy is joining forces with charity Hope Housing to run a special event dedicated to finding workable solutions to the current homelessness situation in Bradford.
The Bradford Homelessness & Housing Summit: What next after Everyone In? will bring together stakeholders from across Bradford to explore next steps for individuals currently housed by the government’s Everyone In scheme. If stage four of the lockdown roadmap goes ahead, a cohort of around 80 people in Bradford face the prospect of becoming homeless; of the 80, 50 are ‘no recourse to public funds (NRPF) clients.
Attendees at the event will hear from Jean Demars, director at the Public Interest Law Centre, on the particular challenges that migrants encounter in the UK. Jean has worked in a variety of frontline and management roles across the homelessness and migration sectors since 2000 and is a specialist on the legalities surrounding migrant homelessness and NRPF.
Following presentations from Hope Housing and the Oxfordshire Homeless Movement – which has united stakeholders in Oxford to deliver a successful migrant homelessness project – there will be an opportunity for discussion, feedback and agreement on workable solutions for Bradford.
This is a must-attend event for anyone working in the housing and homelessness sectors in Bradford.
