10:00am - 12:00pm: Presentations followed by Q&A/Discussion

A number of guest speakers will be sharing their research and learning, including:

  • Monica from Champions Project, a national project that looked at the impact of COVID on children under 5 who lived in temporary accommodation during lockdown.
  • Alex Firth from Human Rights Watch, an organisation who reports on human rights abuses all over the world.
  • Cardinal Hume Centre, Westminster, an organisation that supports families and young people facing poverty and homelessness.

30 minute lunch break

Part 2

12:30pm - 14:00pm: Turning evidence into action: Breakout rooms

We will discuss how we can translate evidence and research into action, what changes we need to look for, and how we can cut through with evidence-based solutions.

Breakout rooms could discuss the use of Temporary Accommodation Action Groups (TAAGs) and APPGs, our Temporary Accommodation Theory of Change, or have an open discussion on vehicles for driving action.
