Podcast: The Future Of Social Housing | Free Word

The Future Of Social Housing took place at Free Word on 26 November 2019, as part of our Writing Our Way Home Season.

Listen back to the conversation with housing and homelessness charity Shelter featuring the first dedicated LGBTQI+ crisis and community centre The Outside Project, author Luan Goldie, poet and campaigner Kojo Apeagyei and Liza Begum.
