Homelessness and Allocations Conference and Exhibition 2017

30 November - 1 December 2017

About the event

About the event

Homelessness has never been higher on the housing agenda.

For the sixth year running, rough sleeping statistics show a significant rise in the number of people living on the streets: last year, the figure was 3,569; this year it stands at 4,134. But it’s not just street homelessness, but hidden homelessness that’s on the rise – in addition to the upswing in rough sleeping; hundreds of thousands of people are living in temporary accommodation.

As housing professionals working in a world of challenging welfare policy, public sector funding cuts and limited supply of affordable housing to rent, it’s more important than ever to come together as a sector and plan for the future. With the Homelessness Reduction Bill currently on its way to gaining Royal Assent, our speakers will be well poised to share ways in which you can prepare for its delivery.

We will provide practical solutions to homelessness prevention, along with a detailed breakdown of how the bill will affect your organisation. Our packed programme will also look at opportunities for housing providers to develop new ways of working, innovative funding models and strategies to address the unprecedented pressures in the sector, and much more!

Join us this November for the annual CIH Homelessness and Allocations Conference; with the full programme available from the end of April, book your place today to secure your 10% early bird discount!
