The number of people dying whilst homeless appears to be increasing every year with the average age of death nearly half that of the general population. This Community of Practice will be a space to look at what is happening both within your service and in the wider sector and consider what the implications are for you, your team and those you support.

Homeless Link are currently working in collaboration with the Museum of Homelessness as part of The Dying Homeless Project to identify what the gaps are in guidance and support for frontline workers and volunteers. We will use the learning from this session to influence and shape these materials. 

Topics we are likely to discuss include:

  •  Sudden death including death as a result of violence
  •  Palliative care and end of life support
  •  Bereavement and grieving
  •  How we celebrate and remember the lives of those who have died
  •  Near death experience s such as working with overdose and suicide attempts
  •  Structural support, resources, systems and the barriers you experience
