Join us for our online Community of Practice to meet peers from across Cumbria who are working directly with people experiencing homelessness. This is an informal space for frontline workers to discuss local challenges, share good practice and seek collaborative solutions. 

We aim to recreate a safe, informal space to:

  • meet peers across Cumbria
  • learn from each other
  • share good practice
  • explore solutions.


What is a community of practice?

A Community of Practice (CoP) brings together those with common interests and goals to collaboratively find solutions to the issues faced by frontline staff when supporting those experiencing homelessness and associated needs.

Through our CoPs we aim to:

  • Facilitate knowledge sharing and social learning between frontline workers

  • Provide a safe venue for people to listen, reflect and receive feedback

  • Allow people to hear about new evidence, learning and practice

  • Try out small changes that encourage innovation

Communities of Practice work by bringing together the considerable expertise and knowledge drawn from your daily experience in delivering your role. Through these we identify challenges, solutions and ensure that the knowledge is shared widely.
