There is already a network of services and systems for people who live and work with homelessness after it has happened. But this is often too late and sometimes too slow. All homelessness starts in a community, so a place-based approach to preventing it happing in the first place is key. The course will connect the causes and drivers of homelessness with the local knowledge and services that can provide an early warning approach using a simple 2-point technique. This course is designed for community planning partnerships, community councils, and the wealth of community-based services, groups and networks. It is also for housing and homelessness organisations who are taking a place-based approach to their work.
Delivered over 1 x 3 hour session – Monday 15th Feb
