In addition to the national learning that is being generated by the programme, local evaluations and research have been carried out by and for the Fulfilling Lives South East Partnership to gain further insights into the specific contexts we are working in.
Fulfilling Lives South East Partnership have released a brief report on homelessness and housing practices during COVID-19.
Read the report here: Responses to Housing and Homelessness during COVID-19 11.09.20
This brief report shares our findings on the impact of COVID-19 on local services that provide housing, and services that provide support for people to access and sustain their accommodation placements. Our findings highlight several responses that suggest possibilities for improving approaches to housing and housing related support. It is our hope that this learning might inform services who support people facing homelessness as they resume operations under less restrictive conditions and prepare for the months ahead.
Please feel free to share this report with your colleagues or partners for whom this may be of interest, and do not hesitate to contact us if you would like any further information about this report or the work of Fulfilling Lives South East Partnership.
The below report presents the findings of a survey of Fulfilling Lives specialist workers and area leads about the impacts of Covid-19 on clients and staff. It contains useful insights into the specific ways the pandemic is effecting people with multiple and complex needs, as well as sharing ideas and best practice around supporting this client group.
