Accessing the right mental health support for people experiencing homelessness at the time that they need it is one of the eternal challenges faced by the homelessnness sector. Join us to talk about what has worked well for you and your team and together let's reimagine a way to make a better system.

You are warmly invited to the Brighton & Hove Community of Practice for team leaders, project coordinators and frontline managers from across the city’s homelessness services.

For this session we will reflect upon the recent experiences of those present of accessing the right mental health care for people who are rough sleeping or experiencing other forms of homelessness across the city.  

We will:

  • Identify areas of good practice and focus on what has worked for you
  • Explore some of the challenges you experience and collectively consider ways in which we can overcome these
  • Share knowledge, resources, and ideas for innovation: what can we do to improve or change the system?

We will endeavour to guide the group using ideas from a Systems Leadership approach and focus on realistic and achievable solutions.

To stimulate discussion, we hope to have a short presentation from Martin Curtis from the commissioned Rough Sleepers PHE service for B&H. However, the primary emphasis for the session will be on what you and your teams are experiencing and what has worked for you in overcoming these challenges.

We will also take a moment to consider how well prepared we are for Winter 2021 and reflect on where partnership working could assist us to achieve better outcomes.

Homeless Link Communities of Practice are designed to bring together people working in homelessness and related fields within local areas, in Brighton and Hove this is focused on those who are in coordinator or team leader roles one step away from the frontline.

The aim is to create a safe and informal space in which attendees can share knowledge and good practice, discuss local issues and explore how best to collaboratively overcome them.
