CoP Latest Documents

We are excited to announce the fifth learning brief of this CoP. You can find the brief here.

This learning brief builds upon Community of Practice (CoP) webinars held in January and April 2022, which exchanged views on how groups worked with city government and other organisations to influence policy and the delivery of services.  This brief focuses on the practical aspects of building engagement at a city-level, how dialogue is maintained and how to track the impact of partnership working.

The learning brief is aimed at members of the CoP and other organisations working to address homelessness and insecure shelter.
