Housing the Homeless post-Covid19
June 18, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 11:45 amFree
Since March, 5,400 homeless and rough sleepers have been given temporary accommodation in hotels across the UK as part of the government’s ‘Everyone In’ scheme.
As the country emerges from lockdown and the scheme comes to an end, what’s next?
If ending homelessness was just about providing four walls and a roof, it would be a relatively easy problem to solve. However, there are many factors that need to be addressed such as addiction and mental health.
In our next Cinnamon Connect Webinar, we’ll be exploring how churches can work with others to ensure rough sleepers are well supported when the crisis is over.
On Thursday 18 June at 11 am Nick Amis, from Cinnamon Network will be talking to Mark Brennen from Housing Justice; Pete Cunningham from Green Pastures; and Ed Walker from Hope into Action.
Nick, Mark, Pete and Ed will be discussing:
- What provision the government is currently making
- Why homelessness is about more than just housing
- How churches can best support those in their communities
- What other housing issues our nation may be facing
