The Homewards National Expert Panel convene for their first meeting of 2024 to advise on the year ahead

The Homewards National Expert Panel met this past Tuesday, 16 April 2024 to provide crucial advice and insight to The Royal Foundation of The Prince and Princess of Wales on next steps for the programme.

The panel discussed areas including reflections and achievements from year one of the programme, prioritising deliverables for year two, exciting upcoming strategic initiatives, and how we can best champion embedding lived experience in future Homewards initiatives.

Chaired by Lord Hague of Richmond, the panel consists 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 November of 2023, playing a pivotal role in driving forward the local coalition development in our six flagship Homewards locations, as well as developing the strategy for our Activator partnership offering.

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.
