Mayday Trust presents a new vision for the sector that is Person-led, Transitional and Strength based.
There is a lot of talk about Systems Change, but what would that really look like for the homeless sector?
Mayday Trust talks:
- A vision for the future; a radically new system
- The Personal Transitions Service (PTS) - the lessons learnt over the last 6 years from moving from a process-led to a person-led system
- What this means for providers, funders, policymakers and most importantly for the grassroots.
This exciting event poses questions such as:
- Is the problem we’re trying to address the right problem?
- Is ending homelessness a reality or is the problem a system that institutionalises people?
- Can you truly deliver strength-based services within a deficit-based system?
- What changes should be made to a deficit-based system?
- Listening and reflection - are organisations up to the challenge of not surviving for survival’s sake?
Mayday Trust, alongside their nine innovation partners, present System Reset which offers the opportunity to:
- Hear about their experiences and lessons learned from delivering this alternative asset-based approach, changing organisational culture and challenging the system from within!
- Learn more about the impact of the UK deficit system on people experiencing homelessness
- Find out how the PTS captures and measures meaningful data
- Hear from funders, commissioners and social investors about how a different type of funding relationship can allow asset-based work to flourish
- Find out from the frontline about their experiences of delivering the asset-based approach and how systemic change can support them to do so.
They say it’s harder to stop a movement than it is to stop a single organisation. If you’re not afraid to challenge the status quo to make the system work for people going through tough times, whether you’re a CEO, senior operational or business development professional within your organisation, a funder, commissioner or social investor, we’d love to see you there!
