Shape the Strategy: Get involved in our mission to end homelessness
Glasgow Alliance to End Homelessness is getting ready to develop our strategy. As we take on commissioned homeless services across Glasgow, this plan will drive our approach, direction and priorities over the next three years. It will be critical to kick-start our city-wide movement for change, but we know we can’t do this in isolation.
We want to hear from people living and working across Glasgow on what they think our new strategy’s priorities should be. Ending homelessness is our collective responsibility, and we want to ensure that our plan is joined-up, innovative and developed in partnership.
We’re open to hearing views and new ideas from anyone with interest in ending homelessness, but in particular:
- People living and working in Glasgow
- People with personal experience of homelessness
- People working on the frontlines of homelessness services
- Statutory and third sector services
- Organisations, services and community groups working across primary and secondary care, health, mental health, addiction, recovery, community justice, emergency services etc
To support this, we’re planning a series of engagement events and activities to capture views. We’re also running an online survey and have engagement packs available to host discussions with your own groups or teams (which will be available shortly).
Glasgow Alliance to End Homelessness is a radical and new approach; it recognises that ‘more of the same won’t do’, and we can try things differently. Getting involved in shaping our new strategy is an opportunity to directly influence the transformation and delivery of homelessness services, and help in ending homelessness in Glasgow.
More information on our series of engagement events and activities can be found below:
