Unit work presented at St Mungo's Commissioners' Forum
Jess Harris reported on our NIHR School for Social Care Research funded homelessness study
The Unit's SSCR-funded study of Strengthening adult safeguarding responses to homelessness and self-neglect recently published a report of its Communities of Practice activity Key messages emerging from conversations in research study sites. Today, Jess Harris was invited by St Mungo’s to present and discuss the report’s messages to a pan-London group of local authority commissioners of homelessness services, which debates current and future service models. There were around 20 participants at the meeting (above – thanks to Steve Douglas CBE for the image).
The Community of Practice strand of the study has run in parallel to the qualitative fieldwork and the comparative economic analysis, which report later in the year. The study is part of the Homelessness Research Programme of the NIHR Policy Research Unit in Health and Social Care Workforce.
