About this event

Following on from our roundtable conversations over the summer, we are inviting back attendees for a future conversation and working group discussion of the steps we can take to enact genuine change.

This is a continuation of existing conversations and therefore primarily aimed at those who have already attended our roundtables. However, if you have not attended previously but would like to be a part of the roundtable group, please get in touch.

In this two hour session, we'll be discussing:

  • what the ultimate digitally inclusive organisation in the homelessness sector looks like
  • the barriers organisations face in reaching digital inclusion
  • the foundations for Homelessness and Digital Inclusion Good Practice Pledge
