Webinar: Autism and Homelessness Toolkit

Tuesday, 24 September 2019
Online | 3.00pm-4.00pm

Learn about good practice in working with people who are autistic and experiencing homelessness.

What will you learn?

Research by Dr Alasdair Churchard has shown a higher prevalence of autism among people supported by rough sleeping and homelessness services than in the general population.

In response to these findings, a multi-agency group with Resources for Autism, Westminster City Council, St Mungo's, National Autistic Society and Homeless Link created a toolkit to help staff in homelessness services understand:

  • some of the signs that a person might be autistic

  • how autism might change the way that people engage with services and support

  • how staff can tailor their responses to better meet the needs of autistic people.

This webinar is an opportunity to hear from Alasdair and learn more about good practice in working with people who are autistic and experiencing homelessness.

There is no charge to book this webinar.
