The need for systems and organisational change in dealing with homelessness
November 16, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
This is targeted at senior leaders and managers in the voluntary and statutory sectors and will combine a mix of inputs, questions, and group discussion. Homelessness is difficult to solve. This is, not least, because it is often the outcome of a confluence of many other inter-related and complex problems. Adding to this complexity, the drivers are structural as well as personal, global as well as local, immediate as well as reflecting policy failures over a long period of time. Systems change is about working together to shift the factors holding complex problems like homelessness in place. It is about identifying what those factors are and working to dislodge them one by one. Brilliant organisations can make a huge difference to the lives of individuals. But addressing the causes of homelessness requires a collective effort. Join us to hear from Jeff Masters, Head of Practice at Collaborate CiC, and one the authors of the recently published report from Homeless Link, on Changing Local Systems and from Pat McArdle, the recently departed Chief Executive of Mayday Trust, on the journey of change in Mayday from a target led to a person led approach to homelessness.
