Blackpool, Wyre and Fylde Frontline Network

The Blackpool, Wyre and Fylde Frontline Network has been facilitated by Streetlife Trust since 2017.

Over the last year the Network has hosted bi-monthly meetings to bring together staff working in homelessness and associated services. This has provided an open forum to share information, ideas and good practice in relation to new legislation and initiatives, as well as troubleshoot problems.

A particular opportunity for frontline workers to share their insights took place when the Network brought together frontline staff to discuss the Government’s Rough Sleeping Initiative funding in Spring 2022. This funding is key in enabling councils and their partners to deliver services to reduce rough sleeping. Through the Network, a meeting was set up to connect frontline staff with representatives from the local authority Housing Options team. This provided a space for key issues to be raised and then built into funding proposals, such as the need for quality training for staff on topics such as trauma informed care.
