What the PLUS Project can offer you
Good practice events and networking forums - online
Our good practice spotlight events and forums focus on the latest policy, innovation, good practice and research in the homelessness and related sectors. They are open to London-based borough officers, frontline staff and landlords and offer fantastic networking opportunities. Details of upcoming events will be advertised in the monthly PLUS newsletter and on Homeless Link's website.
Training - all currently held online due to Covid-19
Our training courses cover a wide range of topics including:
- welfare reform
- homelessness law
- systems leadership
- making effective homelessness applications
- European Nationals' Housing Rights
- domestic violence and housing
- aggressive and difficult behaviour
We attend borough/sub-regional homelessness networks and forums to keep you updated with the latest policy develoment, funding and partnership working opportunities.
The project provides more intensive support to outer London boroughs who have seen homelessness figures recently increase.
Special Initiatives work
From approximately June 2021 until March 2022, the PLUS Project will carry out research into the experiences of Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic people using and working in London's homelessness services.
Policy briefings and homelessness information updates
We send out a monthly email newsletter with the latest homelessness news, consultations, training and events.
We also provide regular briefings on CHAIN data and statutory homelessness trends to keep you up to date with the state of homelessness in London.
The opportunity to feed into consultations and influence decision makers
There are regular opportunities to feed into Homeless Link consultations. If you need support around responding to a particular policy or consultation please London.Plus@homelesslink.org.uk.
Our work with other London Councils funded projects
The PLUS project is working with other agencies funded by London Councils, including domestic and sexual violence, homelessness and No Recourse to Public Funds. Further details of projects can be found on London Councils website.
