Our inhouse comms team started a podcast during lockdown as a way of both engaging colleagues and alerting the outside world to some of the issues we face and work we undertake in the housing sector. In this months we speak to Jo Bhandal - Campaigns Policy and Research lead at charity AKT who reveals the findings of their recent report into the causes of homelessness and its effects on young LGBTQ+ people. Among other things the interview reveals: 24% of homeless young people identify as LGBTQ+ Many become homeless after abuse from their family 2/3 feel repeatedly belittled.

Refugee Week is a UK-wide festival celebrating the contributions, creativity and resilience of refugees and people seeking sanctuary. It was founded in 1998 and held every year around World Refugee Day on 20 June. This year the theme of the event is #WeCannotWalkAlone- a message that has become even more relevant during the COVID-19 pandemic. It is important for us to acknowledge and celebrate Refugee Week with those who have had to build new lives elsewhere and support them to live safely within inclusive and resilient communities. June Heslop, Co-chair of the BAME network, said: “We are excited to be taking part in Refugee Week. We are passionate about what we do, and creating positive social impact is important to us. “When you consider the long history of migration and the reason for people moving, it is important for us to acknowledge and celebrate with those who have had to build new lives elsewhere”. Our BAME network have an active calendar of events and learning sessions throughout the calendar year at Southern Housing Group.
