WEEK 5

Ecosystem of Services

Grow a person-centred ecosystem of services

In the final week of the festival, we are exploring how services can work together to create a ‘response system’ that is effective and person-centred.

When we coordinate our efforts, we become greater than the sum of our parts. Our response to the challenge of homelessness can only be truly person-centred when it brings together housing, healthcare, education, justice, social services, and the collaborative perspective of people with experience of homelessness.

To close the festival, we will hear from experts by experience to learn from their personal experiences of homelessness interventions, as well as practitioners and organisations that advocating for co-design and co-production to be at the heart of government policy. 

We will also explore what needs to happen to join the dots between services, and create a stronger ecosystem of support in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Talking about homelessness: Introduction to framing

To end homelessness for good, a powerful new big idea must replace old notions of poor choices and inevitability. Working together, we can tell a new story about homelessness in the United Kingdom. One that builds public understanding and support for change. One that drives political will for action. Based on research with more than 10,000 people in the UK, this video series from The FrameWorks Institute explains what framing homelessness is, why it matters, and how you can put framing tools and techniques into practice yourself.
