Introducing our new Frontline Network Partner Organisations

Monday, July 24, 2017

The Frontline Network are excited to announce its 10 new Partner organisations for 2017-2019.

Following the setup of the Frontline Network in June 2016, we have been steadily building the Frontline Network’s aim of harnessing the ideas, energy and experience of those at the frontline, working with people who are homeless and vulnerably housed.

Over the past year, we have worked with 13 Partner organisations; highlighting best practice, encouraging innovative, creative and solution-focused ideas and ensuring that frontline workers across England, Scotland and Wales have had a more amplified voice and are at the forefront of our activities.

Five original Partner organisations have been renewed, all of which have been instrumental in developing the Frontline Network to date. Additionally, we are really pleased to announce that we are bringing on board five new Partner organisations, all of whom bring a diversity of knowledge, skills and experience from the frontline.

Our 10 Partners are:

• Cyrenians - Edinburgh
• Target - Rotherham, Sheffield, Doncaster, Hull, Derby and Grimsby
• Changing Lives - North East
• Justlife - Brighton
• Praxis - London
• Street Life Trust - Blackpool, Fylde Coast
• Mayday Trust - Northamptonshire and Oxfordshire
• Kaleidoscope (Arch) - North Wales
• Coventry Citizens Advice
• Path - Plymouth

The Frontline Network is open to any paid frontline worker working with people who are homeless or vulnerably housed, to be part of.

Becoming a member is free and only takes a couple of minutes to sign up. Once registered you can:
• Contribute to our News and Views,
• Apply to our Events Fund for up to £500 to organise an event for frontline workers,
• Submit a creative Idea for up to £10,000 that supports people you are working with who are experiencing homelessness/ vulnerable housing through our Ideas Board, and
• Engage other frontline workers on a topic that is important via our Forum.
