Supporting Those New to Navigating Homelessness: Scottish Frontline Network

Tuesday 1st of December 2020

11:00am to 1:00pm

Zoom-online register here

Over the past few months, we have all adapted our way of working & delivery of services. However, through our frontline services, we have seen an increase in those accessing homelessness services who have no experience of navigating it, due to such issues as increased unemployment, relationship breakdown and health related conditions. Often people will feel apprehensive, or unsure of how to access information, guidance, or know where to access support appropriate to their individual circumstances.

The event will look at how frontline workers can connect, discuss ideas/ share experiences and solutions to this arising issue. As an example of new and alternative  housing practice, we will also be hearing from Viki Fox who heads up a pilot partnership initiative between Cyrenians and Crisis supporting those rough sleeping to access housing within the private rented sector and Elunde McHardy from Crisis will also  talk about the Help to Rent Scheme in Edinburgh. Cyrenians Hospital In-reach Service will also talk about their experiences of the increasing number of individuals that are presenting as newly homeless whilst accessing medical care in hospital.

A Zoom link will be sent before the event to login. If you have any questions regarding the event please contact LesleyAnderson@cyrenians.scot

This event is being hosted by the Scottish Frontline Network. (The Scottish Frontline Network is facilitated by Cyrenians, who are a proud Partner of the Frontline Network. The Scottish Frontline Network supports those working on the frontline with people experiencing homelessness.)
