Law for Life

10am - 3pm

Brighton Hove & Sussex Sixth Form College, 205 Dyke Road, Hove, BN3 6EG

This training will help participants understand the basic rights of people who are homeless and the duties of local authorities towards addressing homelessness. The session will develop your understanding of the process around homelessness applications and aid you in identifying strategies for addressing cases of homelessness, including supporting individuals through relevant administrative processes.
 
We will discuss who is considered to be homeless, look at the scale of homelessness across the UK, and examine key aspects of the Homelessness Reduction Act 2017. We will also discuss who is eligible for assistance, what help they can get, and how to approach and address local authorities.
 
Please note that this is not technical legal training but rather a basic overview of strategies needed to deal with local authorities in the context of homelessness. Our training is focussed for intermediaries working with people who may have housing issues, but are not themselves housing advisors or caseworkers.
