Empowering frontline workers

The Northern Ireland Frontline Network supports workers from the public, statutory and voluntary sectors working on the frontline with those experiencing homelessness.

The network works in partnership with the UK wide Frontline Network so that frontline workers can come together with others to share their experiences.

At a national level

The Frontline Network works across the UK to support frontline workers who are supporting people who are experiencing homelessness. The network does this is by providing various funding programmes at different points in the year, so check back regularly for when these become available.

The Frontline Network are now accepting applications for their training fund. The Fund was set up in 2019 to help cover the cost of training that supports Frontline staff in their work. To find out more and to apply please visit HERE 

The network also provides opportunities for workers to come together and share experiences and expertise at an Annual Conference and other events. You can also check out the What’s On page, that promotes events that are free.

There are regular opportunities to have your say through an Annual Frontline Worker Survey and by supporting each other through an online discussion forum. The News and Views section also shares blogs and best practice from across the UK. A monthly e-news, which you can sign up for here, is shared with all network members.

At a local level

In October 2021 the first Northern Ireland partnership was launched. Frontline Network Partners have helped to build the Frontline Network’s work at a local level, by facilitating their Network activities and regularly bringing together frontline workers. 

Network Partners provide;

  • Opportunities for frontline workers to regularly come together in their areas
  • To network, share experiences and expertise
  • The potential to explore solutions to key issues affecting staff and people they are supporting
  • Links between the frontline voice and decision-makers
