Date:  1st July 2020
Time:  3pm

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 will explore if and how housing could be at the heart of recovery.
