Over 170 participants joined this HSCWRU Homelessness Series webinar to hear and discuss new findings from an NIHR School for Social Care Research (SSCR) funded project which has been Evidencing the social work role within responses to multiple exclusion homelessness. It has explored the impact, experiences and support needs of the specialist homelessness social worker role and system barriers that may need to be overcome. The project, led by Jess Harris, builds on the findings of the Unit’s SSCR funded Adult safeguarding, homelessness and self-neglect study. Participants shared their own experiences and made connections with peers across the country.
