About this event:

Mon, 19 July 2021, 12:30 – 13:30 BST

From Monday 19 July 2021, most remaining Coronavirus restrictions in England are expected to be eased which leaves many questions for health workers and frontline housing providers who are accommodating and supporting people experiencing homelessness in hostels and other temporary accommodation settings.

This webinar will highlight the importance of infection control and safeguarding to protect residents and staff in homelessness settings in London from the more infectious variant of Covid-19. Presentations will also highlight outreach work and what works to address vaccine hesitancy among people sleeping rough.

Homeless health experts will share considerations for accommodation providers in London, including:

  • updated guidance for hostels and other housing providers on Covid IPC (isolate, protect, care) measures
  • continuing the vaccine rollout offer to residents and staff
  • vaccine outreach and support for people sleeping rough
  • practical solutions and resources to help housing providers navigate changing restrictions to keep residents and staff safe as wider restrictions are eased
  • how local authorities are supporting providers with community testing and vaccination rollout
  • advice and responses to attendee questions through a panel Q&A
