Event description

Description

This is the first of a series of programmes presented by CLGdotTV in collaboration with local authority think-tank and membership organisation Local Government Information Unit (LGiU). This roundtable will include among the guests members of the LGiU Homelessnes Commission co-chaired by Cllr Peter Fleming (Leader, Sevenoaks District Council) and Cllr Simon Blackburn (Leader, Blackpool Council)

The Homelessness Reduction Act (2017) has expanded the responsibility of English local authorities around homelessness at a time when high numbers of people sleeping rough, living in temporary or bed and breakfast accommodation, sofa surfing, or living precariously in other ways, are becoming ever more evident. The obvious way is to build more homes, particularly in the social rented sector, but that is unlikely to happen at the scale needed any time soon.

This roundtable will analyse other ways councils can take action now, within existing powers and arrangements, to mitigate the effects of the housing crisis.

LGiU works to strengthen local democracy by providing information, research and other services to over 200 councils, trade unions, universities and other organisations. The scope of the LGiU’s work is as broad as a local authority’s: from housing to social care; from education to local economic growth; from supporting councillors and promoting local democracy to delivering in house training. With eyes on the horizon - what do we want our communities to look like? How will public services meet people’s needs now and in the future - LGiU’s activity is firmly rooted in communities, councils, workplaces, schools and homes.
