    Created: 18/09/2023
    News/Events Category: Employability

    Department for Work and Pensions has announced that employers are being encouraged to sign up to the newly launched Homelessness Covenant to commit to inclusive and supportive employment practices that will help to prevent and end homelessness.

    The Covenant has been launched by the homelessness charity Crisis in collaboration with DWP and the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities.  

    The Covenant aims to support employers to:

    • Provide employment and training opportunities for people experiencing or at risk of homelessness;
    • Adopt fairer employment and recruitment policies and practices to support people affected by homelessness;
    • Help end homelessness in local communities through fundraising, raising awareness, partnerships and volunteering.  

    Employers can find more information about the Covenant and sign up on the Crisis website or e-mail [email protected].
