Homeless Link: North East Community of Practice

Friday, May 21, 2021

The next Homeless Link Community of Practice for the North East will take place on Friday the 21st May at 9.30am-12pm. 

The session will be focussing on ‘lived experience’ and the positive impact of involving people with lived experience in a meaningful way to shape service delivery.

We will hear from speakers from Groundswell and ‘Health Now’ Newcastle about how this work is developing locally and nationally. We will also spend some time as a group discussing opportunities and challenges of involving people with experience and how we can develop this work further.
