This December, JustUs Homelessness Advocacy Bedford is hosting a free online event to look at the rights and wrongs of housing law and remedies to homelessness.
The free online event will take place on Thursday 3 December at 7pm on Facebook Live with Jan Luba QC, one of the leading authorities on housing law and practice in the UK as the keynote speaker.
Jan will talk through the rights that people have when they lose their home, how their rights are often ignored, and what can be done to remedy it.
A lively and candid panel discussion promises to follow, based on questions from the audience.
The panel will include representatives from the homelessness sector and people who have been homeless themselves.
More details can be found on the JustUs Facebook page here.
“JustUs provides essential advocacy support to people who’ve lost their home, ensuring they can be quickly rehoused in safe, settled accommodation,” said JustUs founder and caseworker, Mike Hyden.
“We anticipate that coronavirus is going to lead to large numbers of people becoming homeless in 2021, many for the first time, as the courts start to work through eviction notices in the Spring.
“It is so important that those who lose their home are supported through the system quickly so they don’t end up being caught in the revolving door of homelessness services.
“This event is for anyone who wants to understand the root causes of homelessness and how the system can be used to rapidly help people who’ve lost their home.”
