Practice forums

We coordinate practice forums for frontline Housing First workers across the country. These enable teams to come together to network, explore practice issues and discuss challenges. The learning from the forums feeds into our resource development and policy influencing work. Recent forums include:​​

  • Housing First Manager's Forum | 4 May 2022 | Sign up for free | Featuring a presentation by Bench Outreach on managing graduations in Housing First
