The unequal risk: equality in housing and homelessness


SKU: N/A Category:


The Equality Act 2010 brought together over 100 pieces of legislation dating from 1970 to 2007 to provide a legal framework to protect the rights of individuals and advance equality of opportunity for all. Yet we know that inequalities persist. Experiences of the housing system, including risk of housing crises and homelessness, are varied and we need to understand these differences so we can more effectively prevent and tackle homelessness. In late 2021 Ruth Whatling joined Homeless Network Scotland from the Scottish Government as Head of Policy and Equality after a number of senior roles in the Civil Service. This new course Ruth will present later in 2022 will help increase your awareness and understanding of equality evidence and legislation and the benefits of taking an equality-informed approach to your service design and delivery.
