One of the things I’ve missed most over the last couple of years is getting together with like-minded people. Like so many of us, I’ve spent months working from home, contact has been restricted to video conferencing and the odd socially distanced encounter. It feels such a long time since we properly enjoyed the company of co-workers, partners and like-minded colleagues.
In 2018 and again 2019, just before Covid-19 announced itself to the world, we worked together with the Justlife Brighton & Hove Frontline Network to create a Homeless and Health Conference which was designed to equip people who work to support the health and well-being of people facing homelessness. The energy, camaraderie and connectivity of these days spoke deeply to all of us as we shared our ideas, passions and concerns together. We were reminded that we are part of something bigger and more significant than we often feel or notice in our day-to-day work.
After a two year break we’re preparing to host another conference in June 2022. This is going to be the best yet as we will run 3 events over two days (15 & 16 June). Please note, these are three separate events, each with different booking requirements.
I really hope you can come and bring your input to the days, it really is going to be a special time as we gather together, so put the date in your calendar and guard it fiercely. I look forward to seeing you there, at one or all the events.
