Event description
Learn about Finland's radical approach to homelessness and how it could work in the UK.

About this Event

Finland is the only country in the EU where homelessness is falling. Now its approach is about to be tried out in parts of the UK.

Join our panel to discuss what makes the Finnish scheme successful and whether it will work in the UK.

Chaired by the Ken Macintosh MSP, Presiding Officer of the Scottish Parliament, this panel includes:

  • Sanna Vesikansa, Deputy Mayor of Helsinki
  • Mike Wright, Senior Service Manager of Outreach Services for homelessness charity Cyrenians
  • Kate Farrell, Mayoral advisor on homelessness for Liverpool City Region
  • Mark Johnson, former rough sleeper and founder of charity User Voice
