All In for Change, a collaborative project bringing the voices of lived experience and frontline work to bear in Scottish policy decisions around homelessness, is recruiting for new members of their Change Team.

All In For Change, which started in 2019 and is convened and supported by Cyrenians in partnership with Homeless Network Scotland, is driven by four key principles: 

  • People First – services should take a person-centred approach to increase people’s wellbeing and ensure people have more choice and control.
  • At Home - everyone has a right to their own stable, suitable home.
  • No Wrong Door – support must be coordinated between services, there must be clearer pathways for people most at risk, and nobody should be turned away. 
  • Good Vibes – services should create positive environments and help others to understand and be compassionate towards people having a hard time. 

This change is led by a team of paid volunteers from across Scotland committed to ending homelessness.  

The Change Team is made up of both frontline workers and people with personal lived experience of homelessness, who meet monthly and also take actions through their own networks. They are represented on the Scottish Government’s Homelessness Prevention and Strategy Group, which is chaired by the Housing Minister, and feed into policy development. Each member brings their unique knowledge and life experience to the team to bridge the gap between policy, planning, and action on the ground.  

All In For Change is expanding its Change Team, looking for 15 new members to bring new voices of lived experience and frontline work. 

Recruitment for this role is taking place through Cyrenians. Learn more about this opportunity on their website and submit your application by Monday 7 August.
