    Landlords Making A Difference - Homelessness Week Event

    Homelessness Week 2018 – There’s always something you can do

    Landlords can help end homelessness. In fact, we know that many landlords already do a lot to provide safe, affordable housing, and to make a difference if their tenants are experiencing a tough time. 

    If you’re a landlord, you’re invited to hear speakers from government, industry and the not-for-profit sector. They’ll be talking about actions, large and small, that you can take to prevent and respond to homelessness. We’ll also be collecting your stories of things you’ve done as you seek to be an ‘ethical landlord’.  

    Come and be part of the journey to a housing system that works for all of us.
