We are pleased to share that following your feedback on the date of Impact Forum: Cardiff, we have now rescheduled the event to take place on 24 May 2023. More information about why we have changed the date and what to do if you need to change your ticket can be found in the FAQs below.
Date: Wednesday 24 May 2023
Time: 09:30 - 17:00 BST
Location: The Angel Hotel, Castle Street, Cardiff CF10 1SZ, and online on Zoom
Impact Forums are intended to be free and accessible for all and having listened to people in our network who have shared that the price of hotels in Cardiff are prohibitively expensive for the original date due to a concert taking place locally, we have decided to change the date to Wednesday 24 May 2023.
We hope that this change in date does not inconvenience you and we warmly welcome you to join us on the 24th of May in-person or online. If you have already signed up and can no longer attend, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The good news is that people are welcome to join the event both in person and online, so if you're no longer able to join us in person and would like to join us online instead, this can easily be arranged by sending us an email.
The theme for this event is Learning in adversity: Creating change during a cost of living crisis.
Our Impact Forum brings together the most influential thought leaders, policy-makers and practitioners, entrepreneurs and people with experiences of homelessness to exchange ideas, share, learn and collaborate. It will provide a unique opportunity to discuss how evidence can be used to end homelessness and to build a movement of like-minded individuals and organisations committed to doing so. We want to give people a chance to hear from experts with lived experience of homelessness, charity leaders, frontline workers and policy makers to focus on how we can reflect, learn, and improve the impact of work to end homelessness for good.
One of our keynote speaker swill be Professor Dame Carol Black, author of an independent review of drugs strategy commissioned by the UK Government, whose final report was in 2021. Dame Carol is also Chair of the British Library and of the Centre for Ageing Better. We look forward to sharing more information about our speakers and programme shortly.
