Ending Migrant Homelessness Conference
This special one-day event will bring together Housing Associations, charities and other accommodation providers to share ideas and find solutions for expanding accommodation provision, specifically for people experiencing homelessness and destitution as a result of their immigration status.
We are looking forward to releasing a packed agenda including interactive workshops, keynote speakers, lunch and refreshments.
We want to be able to support and encourage as many smaller local organisations and people with lived experience to attend as possible and therefore we are asking Housing Associations, Local Authorities and National Charities to pay £60 for admission to provide some cross subsidy.
When: Tuesday 25th February
Where: The Principal Hotel, York
