We are pleased to invite you to the launch of Exempt from Responsibility?: Ending social injustice in the exempt accommodation sector: a report by the Housing and Communities Research Group at the University of Birmingham and Spring Housing Association, supported by Commonweal Housing.

Birmingham’s non-commissioned exempt accommodation sector houses an estimated 11,000 individuals who have experienced or are at risk of homelessness and forms an important part of supported housing and homelessness systems. This research investigates the sector through the lens of ‘social injustice’ and incorporates the views of residents, practitioners and providers. It explores both practice and systems-based change and suggests ways we can work together to transform the sector to best meet the needs of those that live in it.

This launch event will bring together experts, decision makers, practitioners and providers to consider the report’s findings and explore good practice; positively and constructively moving the conversation forward.We would like this event to be inclusive, collaborative and solution-focused and really hope you are able to join us.
