Join us for a day of discussion and interactive learning exploring the full journey of support for young people at risk of homelessness, with sharing of best-practice and pioneering new strategies from across Scotland and Europe.
This year’s conference will be chaired by Rock Trust CEO Kate Polson, and will include an insight into some of their newest models of support and how an emphasis on creating choice is already making an impact on young people’s lives in Scotland. These new services include Housing First for Youth, the Rent Deposit Scheme, and Future Builders.
Other speakers include:
Dona Milne, Deputy Director of Public Health, NHS Lothian, and Chair of the Children’s Parliament in Scotland and Youth Scotland
Dr Beth Watts, Senior Research Fellow at I-SPHERE (the Institute for Social Policy, Housing and Equalities Research), Heriot-Watt University
