Webinar: Preventing Homelessness with Mediation
6th December 2019
12:00 UK time
On 3rd April 2018, the Homelessness Reduction Act came into force. Under this legislation, local authorities and other government bodies have a legally-binding duty to provide a wider range of services and protocols, including information and advice, to people at risk of homelessness.
Many are seeing mediation as a key tool in preventing situations where homelessness results from family breakdowns and other conflict, especially for young people.
Official statistics suggest that 57% of youth homelessness is a result of someone being forced to leave their home by a family member or co-tenant. This could be because of lifestyle choices, substance misuse, mental health issues, or something as simple as a breakdown in the relationship between two tenants or family members. In addition, conflict within a tenant-landlord relationship could lead directly to someone ending up on the streets.
Join our CEO & Founder, Dr Mike Talbot, as he reflects on how mediation can be used in this life-changing way, and how our Mediation Skills for Homelessness Prevention course works.
The webinar will also include an interview with Ann Tighe, Chief Executive of Croydon-based homelessness charity, CAYSH. Ann will be talking about the benefits mediation brings and how they have incorporated it into their work.
