The Homewards National Expert Panel met today to provide crucial advice and insight to The Royal Foundation of The Prince and Princess of Wales on next steps for the programme.
The group discussed a range of issues, from how to build upon the progress so far in each of the six Homewards locations in creating strong and effective coalitions, to how The Royal Foundation might best use its convening power to engage a wider network of ‘Activators’ in order to help further drive forward the programme.
Chaired by Lord Hague of Richmond – and consisting of ten renowned experts from across homelessness and associated areas – the Panel have been chosen for their expertise in a range of areas including housing economics, homelessness prevention, mental health, human rights and criminal justice, and represent all four nations of the UK.

The panel previously met in March, playing a pivotal role in the selection of the six Homewards locations, and July, to reflect on the programme launch and begin to look ahead.
The Royal Foundation is also ever appreciative of the ongoing advice and challenge members of the Panel are providing throughout the development of the programme.
The group will continue to meet twice per year to support the implementation of Homewards with ongoing advice, guidance and challenge.
