About the event

Join us for the first event in a new series of policy seminars that will bring people together to develop the solutions needed to end homelessness in Britain. The first event will look at what needs to change to prevent and end homelessness for EU nationals living in the UK.

This event will launch new Crisis research looking at the different experiences of homelessness that migrants face across Britain and provide attendees with the opportunity to hear from an international panel discussing the issues in the UK and EU. You will also have the chance to share your learnings and expertise to identify what needs to change to make sure that no one in the UK is put at greater risk of becoming homeless because of their immigration status.
