This event has already taken place, and is shown here for information only.
An event aimed at local authorities and their local partners to discuss issues around asylum and refugee accommodation.
We recognise that there are several concurring pressures on councils including the closure on Afghan bridging hotels, the ongoing need for Homes for Ukraine move-on accommodation, the streamlined asylum processing leading to positive decisions, plans for increasing capacity within hotel accommodation, plans to exempt asylum accommodation landlords from vital housing safety standards…among others.
As such, the LAs’ steering group have requested that the Thematic Network Meeting on the 11th of July, at 1pm, provides a forum for discussion on various topics relating to accommodation.
Following a scene setting overview, we plan to keep the majority of the session for confidential discussion (not recorded, under Chatham house rules), on the basis of which we will draft a joint letter to the relevant Secretary(ies) of State highlighting our collective concerns.
