Introduction to Homelessness
A one-day training workshop provided by Housing Justice which aims to equip participants to respond to the needs of people who are homeless.
The day offers a basic introduction to homelessness and related issues and includes: an overview of housing and homelessness; mental health awareness; drug and alcohol awareness; and boundaries and personal safety.
Who should attend?
The workshop is especially relevant for volunteers in churches and church-linked homelessness action projects, such as night shelters and drop-in centres. The workshop has also been found useful by people new to working in the field, as well as clergy and concerned members of the public wishing to know more about homelessness. It was first provided to volunteers in church winter shelters in 2003 – 2004, and has been provided continuously since then.
The aim is not to make people into experts but to raise awareness of the issues and equip people to work more safely, smartly and effectively.
