Who is the conference for?
The conference will be of interest to anyone who carries a burden for people who are homeless and could find themselves disadvantaged whilst living and dying from a serious condition.
We welcome professionals and others from health and social care, housing and the voluntary sector who recognise the inequalities that can serve to disadvantage people who are homeless and want to redress them. We are keen to hear a broad range of perspectives and ideas about how we might work together to do this.
If you have any questions about this or any of our other courses, please contact the Education team who will be happy to help
At St Christopher's, a registered charity, it is important for us to maximise any surpluses to reinvest in the objectives of the charity.
Unfortunately, the manner in which we undertake our training currently means we are not able to invest as much of our surplus as possible, therefore from the 1 December 2017, St Christopher’s Education Centre will charge VAT at the standard rate on our training courses, the reason for this change in pricing is twofold:
i) We want to be able to reinvest any surpluses made from training back into all of our charitable objectives rather than only Education
ii) We want to be able to reclaim the VAT on costs relating to developing and running the training courses
