    Ask a question

  • Welcome to our Frontline Network forum, a new venture aimed at connecting, enabling and supporting frontline workers, working with homeless and vulnerably housed clients, across the UK. It is here for you to use to share expertise and experience on some of the issues you face every day in your work. Have a question? Why not ask the forum or join your local discussion group.... BE THE NEXT TO ASK A QUESTION!

  • We have laid out our Terms and Conditions and Privacy Notice separately on the site and you will be asked to agree to these if you would like to register as a user of the Frontline Network. The main purpose of these policies is to ensure that we are able to provide a forum which offers frontline workers a supportive and considerate environment, and allows us to take action if anyone breaches these terms.


    Given the real-time nature of the forum we are unable to keep a constant check on the content and so are not responsible for any content posted or the consequences of any content posted. If you have concerns about information being posted please don’t hesitate to notify us at frontline@stmartinscharity.org.uk or if you think there is a serious breach of terms, use the ‘Report Abuse’ option next to the post.


    If any of the Terms and Condition’s are breached, we reserve the right to suspend or terminate your registration with immediate effect.


    The forum is provided as part of the Frontline Network site to further the vision of building links between frontline workers and facilitating the sharing of knowledge in order to improve outcomes for homeless and vulnerably housed people. If your registration is approved, your use of the forum is on the understanding that anything you post is in the context of supporting frontline workers working with people who are homeless or vulnerably housed.


    Lastly, we hope that the forum is useful and that it is able to support the work that you do! As a new venture, we are open to suggestions of what you think works and what you think doesn’t – so please feel free to email us any comments at frontline@stmartinscharity.org.uk


    Note: We do not under any circumstances accept registrations from individuals seeking support about their own situations.

Hello All, When our clients finally obtain a tenancy, I am struggling to find a charity/organisation/business who can supply and fit carpets or alternative flooring. Any ideas gratefully received. :)

I have a couple who are fleeing violence from a drug gang. The police were involved but the couple did not to want to make a statement because they were to scared. The county they came from gave them a travel warrant and advised them to come to the county I work in. They were placed in bed and breakfast for one night only. They are now being told that although they are fleeing this violent situation, they are not vulnerable enough to make them priority need. I have asked that this is put in writing so we can seek further advice from Shelter. I am waiting for the contact from the first...

We have had a number of proposals submitted through our Ideas Board for Home Starter Packs or Essential Items Starter Packs for people accessing accommodation. This has set us thinking about the issue.

Hi all, I was wondering what people's experiences are of service users accessing healthcare? Has it been straightforward and satisfactory, or have they experienced any barriers or substandard treatment? Would be interested to hear your stories!
