Driving change: help shape future commissioning practice to end rough sleeping and homelessness

Wednesday, 11 December 2019
London | 1.00 - 4.30pm

This roundtable event, hosted by Homeless Link, will explore how to improve the commissioning of public services to end homelessness.

About this event

Effective homelessness commissioning should help to ensure that the services and support exist to prevent someone from becoming homeless, and that should homelessness occur there are responsive, sustainable solutions in place to ensure that it is for the shortest time possible.

Effective commissioning plays a central role in driving up quality, whilst integrating service delivery, and making the most effective use of the available resources to meet the needs of the local population and achieve the best possible outcomes.  

By bringing together Local Authority commissioners and homelessness sector leaders, this event will look to identify the issues with current commissioning arrangements, discuss what good standards there are and what practical sustainable commissioning would look like that would contribute to ending rough sleeping and homelessness. We will also be discussing how large and small voluntary organisations can work better with and alongside one another, when bidding to deliver public services. We would like you to help us to shape the narrative around preventing homelessness.


This event is for Chief Executives and Strategic Directors of homelessness organisations, as well as local authority Commissioners. The number of places are limited to 25 attendees.
