Easy as PIE – Psychologically Informed Environments in Homelessness Sector

June 27, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

People experiencing homelessness often have face challenges around mental and psychological wellbeing. Services take a wide range of approaches to support people struggling with these challenges. One approach which services have adopted is to seek to make their service a ‘Psychologically Informed Environment’ (PIE).

A PIE service considers the psychological make-up – the thinking, emotions, personalities and past experience – of its participants in the way that it operates.  Services which have adopted this approach have found that it can lead to beneficial wellbeing outcomes for service users and staff.

At the seminar which will start with lunch at 1pm, we will hear from two expert speakers on

  • the principles behind the PIE approach;
  • some of the benefits which flow from adopting it;
  • and practical steps you can take to make your service a PIE.

Our two speakers are:

  • Natalie Timothy, Research Associate for Harmoni, Co-editor of the PIE Link and PIE Champion for Northern Ireland
  • Anthony Vaughan, Head of PIE Operations and Therapeutic Services for the Wallich in Wales.

There will be space for discussion and an opportunity to ask questions of our speakers on the day.

The event is for senior staff and service commissioners in the public, statutory and voluntary sectors.

Tickets for the event cost £70. Members of Homeless Connect can buy tickets at the discounted rate of £55.
