Frontline Network Wales: Gwent meet-up

Wednesday, April 21, 2021
12.30-1.30pm
This Frontline Network Wales meet-up will be a space for frontline homelessness, housing and support workers in Gwent to share their views.

Following on from the success of our first round of meet-ups, please join us for this round, this time talking about the changes to the work environment post-Covid. We want to hear your views and experiences - your voice matters!

This event is open to frontline homelessness and housing support staff* working in third sector organisations, housing associations and local authorities in Blaenau Gwent, Caerphilly, Monmouthshire, Newport and Torfaen.

Please join us for an open discussions with your peers about the issues affecting homelessness frontline workers. We want to hear your voices and try to help, by providing links to resources, training experiences and funding, as well as influencing policy at the highest level.

These meetings are specifically for frontline staff, not managers. We want to create a space for frontline staff to be able to speak openly and honestly about their views and experiences - and we ask that managers respect this and do not attend.

These discussions will be informal chats over Microsoft Teams with other frontline workers and staff from Cymorth Cymru. All conversations will be confidential and we aim to create an open and welcoming environment.

*How do we define a 'frontline worker'?

The Frontline Network defines ‘frontline worker’ as a paid worker, who directly supports people who are experiencing homelessness. This includes those working in the Voluntary, Statutory, and Public sectors. Frontline Workers responding to this survey work in roles including outreach, housing, social work, and probation.
