New C-19 Frontline Worker Support Forum - Join the Conversation!

Friday, May 15, 2020

We have seen some extraordinary work being achieved by frontline workers during this outbreak.

We would like to say thank you for the brilliant work you are continuing to do in the wake of COVID-19.

We have asked you what would be most useful for your work during this time, and this is what you have told us:

  • Somewhere to learn about best practice during C-19.

  • Somewhere to access further information and guidance on all areas of frontline work.

  • Some to share specialist knowledge and to start a conversation with frontline workers across the United Kingdom

We have responded to this feedback by creating a brand new "C-19 Frontline Worker Support Forum".

How to Get Involved

The C-19 Frontline Worker Support Forum is a brand new open space for frontline workers to start conversations and share solutions between hundreds of frontline workers across the United Kingdom.

Join the Conversation Today!

You can contribute to the Forum in several ways:

1. Create a Thread: 

You can create a thread on a particular theme or area of work that has been affected by COVID-19.

This thread will allow you to share key updates and specialist guidance, and to ask a specific question for frontline workers to respond.

2. Leave a comment:

If you see a thread which would benefit from your expert insight, please do submit a contribution to help share solutions during this difficult time.

3. Like a post:

Let your peers know that their contributions are valued by liking their submissions.

4. Share this vital resource with other frontline workers:

Anyone who is a frontline worker supporting people experiencing homelessness can access the Forum.

Tell A Colleague

At the Frontline Network, it isn't about us, it is about you as a frontline worker. This forum is open to all frontline workers supporting people experiencing homelessness, from those working in outreach, to housing, charity, statutory services, health, and probation.

Please share this resource with your colleagues and contacts so that they can join the conversation.

If you have any queries about what you can post, please do not hesitate to contact our Policy and Communications Officer: Marcus.loney-evans@stmartinscharity.org.uk.
