A virtual workshop focusing on Homes for Cathy commitment #4, exploring how members can prevent evictions into homelessness.

Hear from Paul Bevan of Shelter Cymru on the charity’s newly published research in this area, including a look at the experience of Welsh social landlords, who before Covid-19, achieved a nearly 40% reduction in possession actions.

Simon Young, Head of Landlord Services at South Yorkshire Housing Association, will discuss how a cultural shift – which is less process driven and more ‘thinking’ driven – together with practices such as furnished tenancies, have helped them drive down evictions to single figures.
