Putting housing at the heart of recovery

EventsResourcesVideosWebinarEvent Date: Jul 1st, 2020

The restrictions on daily life to try to contain the Coronavirus have highlighted the vital importance of ‘home’ and exposed some of the deep inequalities in Wales’ housing provision.

People in small, overcrowded homes have struggled to study, work and live in a confined space.  For some home has brought loneliness, isolation and violence. And after having accommodation, do rough sleepers face a return to the streets?

This webinar explores if and how housing could be at the heart of recovery.

Some of the key topics covered include:

  • the lessons learned about housing during the Coronavirus outbreak;
  • what can be done to provide safe, secure housing in the future.
