Homeless Link Parliamentary Reception
Barka UK staff took part in a parliamentary reception to celebrate the Big Society in action, hosted by Homless Link on the 22nd March in Westminster. The reception showcased the innovative work of the homelessness organisations in partnership with private enterprise, supporting vulnerable adults along their pathway to paid employment. Among speakers were former beneficiaries of homelessness charities who shared inspiring stories of overcoming rough sleeping and entering into a path to sustainable life. The highlight of the day was a concert of Street Opera.
