Description

Rough Sleeping in Oxford: The City Conversation – Starts Tuesday 28th November



Oxford City Council wants to start a citywide conversation with the many people and groups who have an interest in tackling the rise in rough sleeping in Oxford.


The purpose of the day is to identify ways in which organisations and individuals who are concerned about rough sleeping in the city can come together to address the problem.


The following groups will be represented:

  • People with lived experience of rough sleeping and homelessness

  • Homelessness organisations and service providers

  • Other charitable groups and voluntary organisations

  • Businesses and the universities

  • Faith groups and institutions

  • Public bodies including local authorities, Thames Valley Police and the NHS

  • Councillors and MPs


Key outcomes of the event will be to:

  • Kick-off a longer term partnership that will involve interested and committed parties

  • Establish the common ground which exists for forming a citywide partnership to tackle rough sleeping

  • Establish the level of support for such a partnership

  • Agree the next steps in these processes, who will be involved and how they will be involved


This is the start of the conversation to be followed by further dialogue and planning over the coming months, cumulating in the formation of a new citywide partnership in the spring.


Register now to join the conversation!
