Can modular homes be used to address homelessness? An online presentation and discussion sharing the learnings from the first two years of Jimmy’s and modular homes.
Join us for this online presentation and discussion brought to you by the Cambridge Centre for Housing and Planning Research and Jimmy’s Cambridge. Together, we have carried out research to explore the impact and outcomes of using modular homes to temporally house people experiencing rough sleeping by studying the four frontrunner schemes in Cambridge. At the event we will present the research findings, including reflections on outcomes for residents, and on the management of such schemes.
We will also hear from The Hill Group, the housebuilder which established Foundation 200, a £15 million pledge to design, manufacture and donate 200 modular units over five years to local authorities and charities working in homelessness by 2025. Hill will reflect on its experience of working in partnership with a range of organisations across the country, including local authorities, about the challenges and opportunities of developing modular home sites.
The aim of the event is to bring together those managing, developing or considering the use of modular homes to address homelessness, to share experience and learning about the pros and cons of developing and managing this type of accommodation and the impacts for residents.
Event Details: Online, Thursday 16th March – 2.00pm to 3.30pm.
