Homelessness and Migration Conference 2021

Homelessness and Migration Conference 2021

In Spring 2021 a one-day online conference was delivered in partnership the Pan-London Migrant Frontline Network, facilitated by Praxis, a leading migrant charity with a strong expertise in supporting those facing homelessness through immigration advice and bespoke housing solutions, and Homeless Link

The conference provided an overview of the current picture of migrant homelessness in England, immigration and asylum systems and the rights and entitlements of homeless migrants, as well as the effects of Covid-19 and Brexit. It showcased good practice by services and commissioners and share expertise from specialist migrant organisations and people with lived experience. Additionally, it offered practical advice and challenge on how the homelessness and migration sectors can better work together to achieve our shared goals.
