Homeless Link: North East Community of Practice

Thursday, October 14, 2021

Homeless Link Communities of Practice are designed to bring together people working in homelessness and related fields within local areas. The aim is to create a safe and informal space in which attendees can share knowledge and good practice, discuss local issues and explore how best to collaboratively overcome them. Our Communities of Practice are open to paid and unpaid workers and to people with lived experience of homelessness.

For this session we will focus on supporting women at risk of sexual exploitation and will hear from The STAGE Project which is a consortium project led by Changing Lives and is made up of 5 other specialist women’s organisation across the North East and Yorkshire, who are all experts in supporting women who have unmet needs. The STAGE Project will be sharing with us their toolkit which can be used as a good practice guide operationally as well as a tool for influencing policy change nationally. 

The purpose of the 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
  • Try out and discuss changes that encourage innovation
  • Allow people to hear about new evidence learning and practice
  • Harness the expertise of frontline workers to drive real, actionable solutions
  • Improve networking across the sector and with other related fields
  • To identify areas of change within a complex system
