London Champions

Homelessness and Out-of-Hospital Care

Principal Investigator Michelle Cornes has secured Research England funding to use the learning from earlier research to support the development of step-down services across London. 

A Champions Group has now been convened, overseen by the Greater London Authority (GLA), bringing together policy makers and other expert stakeholders to offer improvement support to sites where specialist intermediate care is more advanced and to help further develop these ‘beacon sites’ for London. A mapping of baseline provision in London and needs analysis work to estimate required provision for London have taken place.

After an initial Champions Group meeting in January 2020 an event at King’s on 28 March 2020 brought together those developing services to reflect on the barriers and facilitators to translating the research findings into their practice. The learning and outputs from the workshop have been captured so that it can extend beyond the beacon sites.

Key project partners supporting this London Champions work alongside King’s are: Emma De Zoete (Public Health Consultant to the Greater London Authority); Jemma Gilbert, Director of Transformation at Healthy London Partnership; Gill Leng (Homeless Health Advisor to DHSC and MHCLG); Alex Bax, Chief Executive at Pathway, Stan Burridge, Director of Expert Focus and a group of Experts by Experience.
