We are excited to announce the third learning brief of this Community of Practice (CoP). You can find the brief here.
This learning brief summarises learning from our CoP webinars on co-production held on 15 October 2020 and 21 January 2021. The brief offers practical tips to increase the involvement of service users and communities in designing and directing activity to reduce homelessness and insecure shelter.
