Housing First: maintaining the principles during the COVID-19 pandemic

Choice and control are key principles of the Housing First model. Meanwhile, the COVID-19 pandemic has increased pressure and restricted organisations' capacity. In this webinar, experienced policy and practice team members from across the UK discuss the challenges and the work done so far. 

The session will begin with some background on the principles of Housing First in Wales, and the pressure points before and since the pandemic, by Alex Osmond, Housing First Coordinator here at Cymorth Cymru, and a core part of the Housing First Network for Wales.

Then we will hear from Kelly Hill, Housing First Service Manager, Pobl Group, about work that has been done on the ground in Newport . Her team has been responsible for a really intense period since March, in which many rough sleepers were helped into accommodation 

Finally, Claire Frew, Policy and Impact Manager at Homeless Network Scotland will talk about some of the important and exciting lessons and achievements during the same period in Scotland.

There will be plenty of time for questions at the end of the session. Get in touch if you have any questions.

Free. Hosted via GoToWebinar.
