Over the past year, there has been an 11.4% increase in the number of households assessed by local authorities as either homeless or threatened with homelessness. The total number of rough sleepers in the UK has increased by 165% since 2010. Over 120,000 children are housed in temporary accommodation, with the number of people in temporary accommodation at its highest in over 10 years.
These statistics are a very visual demonstration of the challenges that local authorities are currently facing. To address these challenges, Bloom invite you to join us for a special webinar where we will be joined by Claire Knox, Programme Lead for Commissioning from Newcastle City Council and Neil Morland, Managing Director of Neil Morland & Co Housing Consultants, to discuss:
- How Housing Associations can successfully work with stakeholders to rehouse people who have experienced homelessness
- How Newcastle is utilising the rough sleeping initiative funding to end homelessness
- Discussion about previous housing solution projects Newcastle has implemented and unpacking some of the challenges along the way
