About This Event

Leading organisations working in homelessness and basic skills have come together to present the inaugural Literacy100 Conference: an event highlighting innovative approaches to supporting literacy in the homeless sector.

This conference will give attendees the opportunity to spend a day surrounded by key experts who are working to promote best practice and greater access to literacy in the homeless sector. Over the course of the conference, you'll hear from specialists covering topics such as psychologically informed learning, the use of supportive technology, and inclusive teaching practices. The full programme will be released shortly.

Tickets are free but space is limited, so we recommend reserving your spot as soon as possible.

Please note: we are unable to provide lunch as part of the conference but a range of cafes are available nearby.
