About our coaching service
Homeless Link’s coaching scheme is available to all staff working in homelessness or supported housing. It is designed to provide a confidential, safe space for reflection and discussion. You may want to unlock an overall desire to change or focus on a specific issue.
By exploring this with you, our coaches will support you to take control; to identify what needs to change and come up with the answer and approach that best suits you to support this change. They will listen and ask questions that will challenge you to identify the course of action you need to take in regards to your own development.
Working with a coach can not only help you to focus on your personal development, but they can also help when you are looking to develop new skills or change an area of practice within work. By working through an issue, you have the opportunity to rehearse a situation before needing to manage it in real-life.
The coaching scheme is structured around 6 sessions, each lasting 45 minutes. It is important to us that you are able to build a trusting relationship with your coach that allows for open conversations. As such the first coaching session is offered for free, and at the end of the session if you are happy we would ask you to commit to a minimum of 5 further sessions. The frequency of the meetings can then be flexibly arranged to suit individual needs. Currently the sessions will take place online.
We may choose to evaluate the programme to help us to improve the programme’s delivery and to enable us to illustrate the value of coaching to future participants.
Initial 6 sessions: £475
Subsequent 6 sessions: £570
