Take a look at new free training and a short film for client-facing practitioners in homelessness, health and care services.

1. New free training course: Improving Access to Services for Clients Experiencing Multiple Disadvantage & Co-occurring Conditions

The Homeless Health London Partnership, part of Transformation Partners in Health and Care’s (TPHC) Homeless Health London Partnership, has worked with partners and experts by experience to produce a new offering of training and learning on supporting people with co-occurring conditions of homelessness, substance use, and physical and mental health issues.

Developed in partnership with the Office for Health Improvement and Disparities, a free CPD-accredited eLearning module has been designed to support cross-sector professionals to better meet the needs of people facing homelessness who have co-occurring substance use, mental health and physical health issues. Enrol now and be the first to get access to the training.

Through four modules with 23 bitesize training videos led by experts by experience and you will:

  • develop an understanding of the individual, service and system level barriers that exist for people with multiple needs co-occurring conditions when accessing services
  • recognise the prevalence of trauma and how to work in a trauma-sensitive way
  • be given practical and creative approaches to assessment, engagement, and support
  • recognise the importance of gender-informed service models and peer support

Find out more information on the Homeless Health London Partnership website.

2. Searching for Answers film

Searching for Answers – navigating homelessness, substance use and mental health is a short film funded by the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities.

The film tells the story of two people’s lived experiences and captures their views on what helps when accessing care and support from services. It aims to address prevalent myths and stigma often attributed to people with co-occurring conditions and to promote the impact that person-centred care can have on patients or clients.

Launched last week, the film and an accompanying workbook for practitioners can be accessed on the Homeless Health London Partnership webpages.
