The British Psychological Society invites you to their annual Gathering - this year exploring the complexities of homelessness hoping to inspire change and challenge preconceptions. 

We are hosting a range of presentations and discussions, including representatives from services and charities, and people who have experienced homelessness themselves.

At the end of the event, you will have a better understanding of how you can be an agent for change within this field. We hope the event will provide an opportunity to share ideas and work together in informing the best way we can help the homeless community.

The event will be hosted at St Werburgh's Community Centre in Bristol. The venue is accessible by several different means. There is off-street parking, however, this will be limited. The venue is a short distance from the town centre.

The event will start at 1pm. You will be provided with a free lunch, expected to be served at 2.10pm. Then there will be speakers with comfort breaks in between with the event aiming to finish at 6.30pm. During the break, we hope there will be an opportunity to network with other organisations and learn more about the services working with homelessness in the South West. A full programme will be released closer to the event.

If you are a part of an organisation that would like to host a stand at the event, please email [email protected]

A full line-up of speakers will be added soon.
