At this event

Over 180 participants joined an HSCWRU Homelessness Series webinar to hear and discuss findings from interviews and focus groups with people with lived experience of multiple exclusion homelessness, from the Unit’s ‘Adult safeguarding, homelessness and self-neglect’ study.

Two members of the study team, PI Jess Harris and PPI lead Stan Burridge, presented research messages, with reflections from three lived experience study contributors. Questions and comments from participants brought useful reflections from practice across health, adult social care and homelessness organisations. Participants thanked speakers for an event described as ‘very enlightening and interesting, thank you!’ and ‘thought provoking and helpful to help with service redesign’. Forthcoming webinars in this series are listed here.
