The Queen’s Nursing Institute invites you to participate in a learning and networking day about improving service capacity to benefit health for the most vulnerable and marginalised women, particularly women experiencing homelessness.

This is part of a series of learning events held around the country related to homeless and inclusion health organised by The Queen’s Nursing Institute, and funded by the QNI and Oak Foundation.

The event will explore the inequalities in health faced by homeless and marginalised women in particular, and what more can be done to develop responsive services that meet their needs now and tackle wider inequalities. The day will feature presentations, Q&A sessions, networking and a free lunch. There will be panel sessions on research and policy, improving frontline practice, and designing the future.

We will be kindly hosted by the Department for Adult Nursing at Birmingham City University.

Confirmed speakers:

  • Maeve McClenaghan, The Bureau of Investigative Journalism
  • Gemma Scire, Basis Yorkshire
  • Dr Ligia Texeira, Director, Centre for Homelessness Impact
