Launch event for The Homelessness Monitor England 2021

We are holding an online event to launch The Homelessness Monitor 2021 - Crisis’ state of the nation report on homelessness led by Heriot-Watt University. The event will take place on Tuesday 23rd March 2021, between 1 – 2.30pm.

This year’s report is published after a year which has been dominated by the major events of the COVID-19 pandemic and Brexit and takes stock of the progress made in recent months.

While there is much to learn from the quick and radical response to homelessness during the pandemic the report lays bare the critical shortage of affordable housing.

In this online event, we’ll give an overview of the findings and discuss what can be done to ensure we have a long-term strategy to ensure everyone has a place to call home.

Speakers include:

  • Prof. Suzanne Fitzpatrick, I-Sphere, Heriot-Watt University
  • Prof. Glen Bramley, I-Sphere, Heriot-Watt University
  • Prof. Mark Stephens, University of Glasgow
  • Jon Sparkes, Crisis
  • Catherine Bennion, MHCLG
  • Matthew Wilkins, NAO

About The Homelessness Monitor England 2021

The Homelessness Monitor is a longitudinal study providing an independent analysis of the homelessness impacts of recent economic and policy developments across the United Kingdom. Separate reports are produced for each of the United Kingdom nations. This ninth annual report updates our account of how homelessness stands in England in 2020, or as close to 2020 as data availability allows. It also highlights emerging trends and forecasts some of the likely future changes, identifying the developments likely to have the most significant impacts on homelessness.
