This event is free

Crisis, the Scottish Frontline Network and Homeless Network Scotland will be hosting a free webinar session for those who work and volunteer in their local community, exploring how local organisations, groups and services can help people to keep their homes.

We believe that everyone has a role to play in preventing homelessness and at this event we want to: 

  • Raise awareness of how communities can play a key role in preventing people from losing their home
  • Share examples of existing practice & approaches within the community, including place-based approaches to preventing homelessness
  • Learn more about new or innovative prevention practice in your area
  • Understand what changes are needed to allow people to get help as early as possible and for services to work more collaboratively to achieve this

We would particularly like to hear from frontline managers, staff and volunteers who provide or deliver services in local community settings including:

  • Advice and advocacy
  • Relationship counselling
  • Mediation services
  • Help with finances
  • Women’s / Men’s support groups
  • Housing help and support
  • Health services including GP’s, community pharmacies and dentists
  • Food services – pantry’s, foodbanks, community cooking
  • Services for specified groups eg. young people, ethnic minorities,
  • Employability help
  • Faith based groups
  • Tenant or resident groups

At the event we will hear from Impact Lead David Ramsay from Homeless Network Scotland, Pauline Kerrigan from The National Lottery Community Fund, Project Coordinator Alfie Weaver from the Swansea NPT 360 Project and Bryan Wagner-Adair from the Built for Zero project will talk about an innovative data-led approach to tackling homelessness within a community.
