Bridging the Gap: understanding the health care support and training needs of frontline workers supporting people experiencing homelessness
Added 17 August 2022
This paper, based on work carried out by the Homeless Health Consortium (Homeless Link, Groundswell and Pathway) as part of the wider VCSE Health and Wellbeing Alliance, sets out findings of a consultation with frontline homelessness workers and people experiencing homelessness. It explores the barriers to, and opportunities for, more effective health and social care conversations and what training and wider support mechanisms are already available to frontline workers to help them facilitate health-related conversations, with a view to understanding what gaps there are in the current offer.
These findings are being used to develop resources and information to address some of the gaps identified.
