A special forum is being held later to discuss the problem of homelessness in the region.

Organised by Manchester Metropolitan University it aims to generate ideas to solve the housing shortage.

It will bring together academics, charities, professionals and members of the public in a series of discussions and workshops to generate new ideas to reduce the housing shortage in the North West

We are so lucky and grateful for the opportunity Manchester Metropolitan University has given so many people. The idea is to record this data and inspire a range of people in thinking about how this national and local problem can be solved. The currency of this event will be the ideas and passion of the attendees, as the housing crisis is something that undeniably affects us all, as witnesses to our city. A better way can often be found by people uniting to share ideas for alternatives and the awareness of the need for possibilities and change.
