This FREE, fully online event on Tuesday 28th June 2022 is aimed at **frontline staff working across the UK with people experiencing homelessness.
Our theme this year is 'working together'.
At this year's event, you will hear from a range of people who are working together across the UK. Whether with colleagues, peer networks, experts by experience, across agencies, sectors, different areas of the country; by working collaboratively, they are overcoming barriers and ensuring people have the best possible support.
As a Charity, we are strongly committed to working with others. To effect change, we need to remove the silos, the "I" and replace these with "We". We need to be working together.
We hope you will find this event enjoyable, and take away information that is helpful, inspiring and can be applied in your work practice- where-ever you are based in the UK!
**We define a frontline worker as anyone in a paid position directly supporting people experiencing homelessness. This includes staff working in the public, statutory and voluntary sectors in roles including outreach, housing, mental health, drug and alcohol support to probation.
The theme and sessions of this conference have been directly informed by responses to our Annual Frontline Worker Survey, which we are excited to be sharing emerging findings from as part of our opening plenary session.
