Rough State: A Panel Discussion with FAQ and the Bristol Cable
November 28, 2019 @ 6:30 PM - 8:00 PMFree
This event comes at a time when rough sleeping is rising across the UK. In Bristol, 1000 people faced street homelessness last year – up by nearly a quarter from the year before. Homeless deaths in this city are now the third highest out of any city in the UK. Meanwhile, Bristol City Council has pledged to “halve rough sleeping by 2022 and eradicate it by 2027″. What are the real causes of homelessness? How can we end this crisis?
Featuring a range of contributors, with perspectives on housing, welfare, homelessness services and beyond, this event will explore the structural barriers to housing and different questions relating to homelessness today. The event will include opportunities for audience members to join the discussion with the speakers.
