Wednesday, 29 January 2020
London | 12.30pm-4.30pm | Free event

At this event we will look at examples of the positive health interventions for rough sleepers being offered across the city. We will also explore ways in which we can increase provision and address any gaps.

Who is this event for?

Day Centre workers in London. Open to people in paid or unpaid roles supporting people who are homeless or rough sleeping from across London services.

What is the event about?

Presentations and group work activities will explore ways in which the health interventions for people rough sleeping can be maximised. Currently we have asked three services to give brief presentations about their work - we will confirm the details of who nearer to the event. We will also have lots of time for networking and group discussion. 

If you have an example of health related good practice, some innovative work, a particular health specialism or success story that you would like to share please get in touch to discuss how we might make this happen on the day.

This Community of Practice aims to bring those in comparative roles from across London’s day centres, to share experiences, learn from each other and identify solutions. It will be a space to network, get to know the faces behind the emails and to develop strategies for better partnership working across the sector.

The event is also open to other front line workers who may find this useful. We do also run events for outreach workers and for those who work in supported accommodation.

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 RSI coordinators

  • 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.

There is no charge to attend this event.
