Homelessness Awareness
Half day / 3.5 hours

One need only visit a city or town centre to see the sad reality that homelessness is a very real issue for growing numbers of people. This half day training (3.5 hours) is suitable for anyone who wishes to better understand the complex issues around homelessness and the services and support required to help those unfortunate enough to be experiencing it. 

The training content will include: exploring the many causes of homelessness and the often complex support needs of the homeless; the impact of homelessness on physical and psychological wellbeing; statutory and non-statutory support services and their roles in tackling homelessness; and how you might help and support those working with the homeless.
