Home Connections Forum & Revive Seminar will be held on 23rd August between 14:45-16:30 at Lipton House, 170 Crown Street, Glasgow G5 9XD.

The programme is open to all social housing professionals, who want to learn about hope, the Homelessness Case Management system and the launch of its smartphone app.

In addition, there will be a presentation about Homefinder UK`s Revive project which focuses on relocating domestic abuse survivors to permanent social housing in a new and safe environment in a different part of the country.

Finally, the guest speaker Ms Leilani Farha, the UN Special Rapporteur on adequate housing,  will speak about ‘Is there really a shortage of housing?’ in a skype call.

They will also screen the trailer of “Push – The Film”, the new and upcoming documentary by WG Film and Fredrik Gertten on the global housing crisis, which follows Leilani Farha as she travels the globe trying to understand why we can`t afford living in our cities any longer? Why the costs of urban housing continue to skyrocket?
