Exploring low-barrier drug and housing interventions for people experiencing homelessness
Ben Scher was the latest speaker in the Homelessness series at King's
At a King's webinar today, Exploring low-barrier drug and housing interventions for people experiencing homelessness, over 280 participants joined Ben Scher, University of Oxford PhD candidate in Social Intervention and Policy Evaluation and outreach worker, to hear and discuss findings from his international research exploring interventions having an impact at the intersection of homelessness and drug policy.
The questions and reflections from practice included health and social care, probation, drugs services and homelessness sector perspectives. Participants included policymakers from two UK government departments and international attendees from France and Iceland.
The slides are available on the event webpage.
