Report launch: A roadmap for supporting non-UK nationals facing homelessness

Wednesday, June 29, 2022
 COVID came at the right time… we just said ‘Yes’. Imagine a world where the first answer isn’t 'No'. 

Join Homeless Link for the launch of our new report, Unlocking the door: A roadmap for supporting non-UK nationals facing homelessness in England. Chaired by Sophie Boobis, Head of Policy and Research at Homeless Link, we will explore findings from our research on what works in tackling homelessness among non-UK nationals with restricted eligibility, and what needs to change at local and national levels.

We will hear presentations and discussion from panel members, including:

  • Jennie Corbett, Homeless Link Senior Policy Manager
  • Gill Taylor, Strategic Lead for Single Homelessness & Vulnerable Adults at Haringey Council
  • Denise McDowell, Chief Executive of Greater Manchester Immigration Aid Unit
  • One of NACCOM’s Community Researchers with lived experience of homelessness and immigration control

Our research over the past year - facilitated by our local authority project partners Bedford Council, Haringey Council and Manchester City Council - distilled lessons from the COVID-19 pandemic and pre-existing good practice, and identified the blockages in national policy that are obstructing progress. The event will present policy and practice recommendations that will work beyond COVID-19 to find better solutions for this group.
