10.30am - 1.30pm

Maidstone Town Hall, High Street, Maidstone, ME14 1TF

You are warmly invited to the next South East Homelessness Forum, on Monday 8th October, kindly hosted by Maidstone Borough Council (www.maidstone.gov.uk/).

This event will be different to previous iterations of the Forum, as we respond to feedback from attendees (thank you to all those who gave feedback!). There will still be updates on issues relevent to the sector, but these will be presented in the more interactive way of tabletop discussions. Please see the agenda below for more information on what will be covered.

We look forward to seeing you at what we hope will be a useful event, in which you can receive sector updates, share your views and learn from sector colleagues.

There is no charge to attend. Please register for the event here
