Steve Douglas is the CEO of St. Mungo’s, a charity dedicated to ending homelessness and helping rebuild the lives of those that have experienced time on the streets. Steve is extremely concerned about the welfare of homeless people, who have had a particularly tough time in 2020.
He has more than 25 years experience working in the housing sector and has held numerous Director and Chief Executive positions in a variety of housing-related roles and was awarded a CBE in 2019 for his services in this area.
He began his new role at St Mungo’s in July of this year, in what must have been an extremely challenging period, and has promised to further the ambition of St Mungo’s ‘No Going Back’ and ‘Home for Good’ campaigns.
St Mungo’s has played a key role in delivering the ‘Everyone In’ initiative. The ‘Everyone In’ scheme was designed to get every rough sleeper inside and safe from the virus. They managed 27 hotels as part of the emergency accommodation provided to support people during the pandemic first wave.
Additionally, St Mungo’s operates one of the largest outreach services in the country, offering a bed and support to more than 2,850 people each night , with the goal that “everyone has a place to call home and can fulfill their hopes and ambitions.”
At the beginning of the pandemic there was understandable concern regarding the huge numbers of homeless people on the streets in the UK.
Despite recent events, there was also concern around the economic impact and the prospect of more people being made homeless having lost their jobs and unable to pay rent and bills.
Join us as we will be talking to Steve about homelessness during the pandemic, the work of St Mungo’s, government support and hidden homelessness.
