Curia UK Levelling Up Commission
Curia, managed by Chamber UK, is holding a series of evidence sessions around the Government's Levelling Up agenda.
The Levelling Up Commission intends to consider ways to implement the Government’s Levelling Up White Paper and subsequent Bill from the perspective of local and regional government. Too often the Levelling Up agenda is something being done ‘to and for’ local and regional government, the Commission intends to make sure it is done ‘with and by’ them.
Through roundtable meetings with MPs and senior leaders of local and regional government from across the UK, quantitative data analysis and regional sprints, the Commission intends to set out a series of recommendations to consider how regional inequalities can be reduced from the perspective of public services in four key areas:
- Health and Social Care
- Housing and Homelessness
- Education, Skills and Training
- Crime, Justice and Rehabilitation
Curia invited the Cardon Banfield Foundation to be part of the Housing and Homelessness section of the Commission and our CEO gave evidence on the 5th September 2023. Hugo Sugg was pleased to be joined on the panel by Joe Garrod, Corporate Director of Housing at Waltham Forest Borough Council.
Full video from the Panel will be available shortly, but a preview is available here.
Hugo Sugg, CEO, reflects on this opportunity:
"The Foundation's mission is to try and change how the homeless sector works to make a positive, tangible difference to the lives of people who are homeless or faced with homelessness.
The Commission has opened up the opportunity for us to promote our innovative Satellite Hub Programme and Worcester Model work, helping to turn ideas into real practice. It's also opened up doors for sharing resources with other organisations in the sector. Through this work, we can respond to homelessness better."
