Launch: Addressing multiple exclusion homelessness in social work education


18MarBench with person's belongings strewn aboutPart of Homelessness series

Launch of a report / resource on addressing multiple exclusion homelessness in social work education in England

This webinar will share findings and innovative practice from research which has explored how social work education can improve learning on multiple exclusion homelessness, in order to prepare social workers for working with people experiencing severe and multiple disadvantage.

'Multiple exclusion homelessness' (MEH) refers to overlapping social exclusions that compound homelessness, such as mental ill-health, substance use, poor physical health, experience of institutional care, and trauma.

Social work is well placed to respond to these multiple facets of exclusion, however at present homelessness is not a well developed social work specialism. Previous research by the NIHR Health and Social Care Workforce Research Unit at King's College London has found that social workers are often ill-prepared when encountering such issues in their practice, and social workers striving to drive good practice are often isolated and unsupported by their peers.

This webinar is led by Karl Mason and Jess Harris. Book via Eventbrite.

This event is part of Social Work England Social Work Week 2024
