We’re not going to pretend that we can solve homelessness, or even start to at a meeting of Pints and Politics.
What we can do is share ideas about how we, as individuals and neighbourhoods can do more to help in our daily lives. Alongside public policy changes that will take time and collective will – what can we start doing today?
We all have questions. What forms does homelessness take in my neighbourhood – who is homeless? What is the best way that I can assist as an individual Londoner? What more could our neighbourhoods be doing to help our homeless neighbours? How and when should I engage those living with homelessness?
Please join our guest moderator Abe Oudshoorn as we pass the mic and consider homelessness in our own neighbourhoods.
Come out with your questions and your ideas. If you have lived experience with homelessness and are comfortable sharing, please do. We have a lot to learn.
