Two gigs today

Blog

I’ve got two gigs today. One chairing and interviewing at the launch of a new campaign about the needs of people with complex problems organised by Homeless Link, another speaking to a conference hosted by UrbanBuzz on knowledge transfer projects. I’m still finalising what I’m going to say at the second of these, but I am even more motivated to do a good job on the first having just been sent a powerful piece by Mark Johnson.

I’ve met Mark a few times. As someone who has himself led a chaotic life and had to work incredibly hard to get things back on track he is always worth listening to.

Meeting the needs of the most troubled families has emerged as a Government priority in recent years. These are the people left behind by a generally rising tide of affluence. But as the tide recedes and the public money declines will we still give this group the attention they so badly need?
