About this Event

Climbing the ladder out of homelessness. Motivation is a great factor in supporting people out of homelessness. How do we inspire and motivate some of the most vulnerable people to do that?

  • What are the barriers and what are the opportunities?
  • How do we support people to take on those opportunities and take control in life changing decisions?
  • As workers, how do we keep motivated in working with people who are not motivated?

Change Please is hosting this event at their training academy in Peckham. We will get the chance to hear about the training opportunities and support available and see where the training is taking place!

You are warmly invited to join us for the next 'Supported Accommodation and resettlement workers in London's Homelessness Sector' Community of Practice.

This Community of Practice will aim to bring those in comparative roles from across the London’s hostels, night shelters and other supported accommodation settings, together 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.

Unfortunately, the venue is not fully accessible as the main event will be held on the first floor. We apologise for this as we always like to hold our events at accessible locations. We felt it is important to hold the event there as it will give attendees the opportunity to visit the space and experience the training opportunity. Change Please are happy to arrange individual visits at the training academy (ground floor) if this is causing a problem.


The purpose of a Community of Practice is to:

• Facilitate knowledge sharing and social learning between practitioners

• Provide a safe venue for people to listen, reflect and receive feedback

• Allow people to hear about new evidence learning and practice

• Try out and discuss changes that encourage innovation

• Harness the collective expertise to drive real, actionable solutions

• Improve networking across the sector and with other related sectors


There is no charge to attend this event, but places are limited so please RSVP as soon as possible.

Lunch and refreshments will be provided, if you have any dietary requirements please state these at the time of booking.

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