The NPSS National Conference is now in its third year; held annually in July at the University of Warwick, this popular event has become the chosen conference for local authority housing practitioners to attend due to its focus on homelessness prevention and an environment in which delegates can share challenges and good practice. Feedback from conferences to date has been hugely positive, with 99% of delegates rating the conference as ‘good’ ‘very good’ or ‘excellent.’
NPSS Sounding Boards take place annually in January and February. These are events specifically for local authority Housing Options and Homelessness strategic leads to hear policy updates, share good practice with other local authorities, and discuss current challenges and solutions. The events are hosted by NPSS and have been supported by partners such as Crisis, Homeless Link, Women’s Aid and Public Health England.
