Event description

Description

During 2018, LGiU is working with its members to investigate what actions local government can take to prevent homelessness. As part of this, we are working with the North London Housing Partnership – a consortium of 6 boroughs – to host a policy café event on the impact of immigration on homelessness.

In London, migrants are more likely to end up sleeping rough than anywhere else in the UK. The number of EU nationals sleeping rough has also been steadily increasing since 2010. For local authorities, immigration brings an extra dimension to tackling homelessness.

Policy café events are informal spaces to discuss issues of interest to officers at LGiU member authorities.
