Creating and maintaining supportive, inclusive networks for groups and organisations is key to tackling complex issues like homelessness

TCT works with a number of different partners to create spaces for different groups to meet and share their experiences of working to end homelessness.

Wolverhampton

TCT supports the long-running Homelessness Forum in Wolverhampton, acting as its' Chair.

The Homelessness Forum was set up in 2007 to assist vulnerable people in Wolverhampton who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.

It seeks to achieve this in three main ways:

  1. Sharing and collating information and recording available services.
  2. Coordinating services, by establishing links between services and seeking to avoid duplication.
  3. Where possible, to seek a spread of services throughout the week.

The group meets every other month and is open to any group, charity, faith group or organisation to join.


Wolves Homeless Forum

In Walsall, this involves partnering with the national charity Homeless Link to run a Community of Practice, which brings together those with common interests and goals to collaboratively find solutions to the issues faced by frontline staff when supporting those experiencing homelessness.
