Scotland’s Annual
Homelessness Conference 2023


Striking the right chord
on homelessness

A musical theme ran through Fine Tined: striking the right chord on homelessness – and the message that rang loud and clear throughout the day at Perth Concert Hall was that creativity and collaboration across sectors and organisations has never been more important.

This year’s annual homelessness conference brought together more than 200 people to focus on unlocking solutions to the unprecedented pressures weighing down on local housing systems. It was a day packed with speakers, workshops, roundtable discussions, passionate debate and panel sessions – with musical interludes adding to the energy and inspiration in the air. Issues in focus this year included providing safe homes for women, making Housing First work, being braver and more human, helping those facing serious disadvantage to thrive and counteracting the destitution caused by UK immigration policy.

Thank you to all who took part including speakers, facilitators, exhibitors and delegates. Together we can make progress towards ending homelessness for every person and community in Scotland.
