World Homelessness Day

Join us on 10 October as people worldwide come together to mark World Homeless Day. This important day draws attention to the needs of people who experience homelessness locally and encourages community involvement to address the issue through better policies and funding.

At The Exchange, we invite you to an evening of thought-provoking discussions and inspiring stories including a panel discussion exploring the unique challenges of women’s homelessness.

The panel is chaired by Gráinne Cuffe, Chief Reporter at Inside Housing - the leading monthly magazine for news, analysis, and comment about the social housing sector in the UK.

Panellists include Thea Raisbeck, an Honorary Research Fellow at the University of Birmingham. With over a decade of experience in housing, homelessness, and domestic abuse, Raisbeck blends academic expertise with frontline practice, advocacy, and campaigning. More to be announced.*

*Due to unforseen circumstances, author and journalist Kieran Yates is no longer able to join our panel discussion as advertised in our print brochure.


This event is presented as part of A Place to Call Home a new public programme of exhibitions, activities and events exploring what home means to all of us. Understand diverse experiences through the eyes of people who have lived through them and find out about the latest social justice research at the University of Birmingham.
