London PLUS Project
What the PLUS Project can offer you
All PLUS Project activities are funded by London Councils, which means there is no cost to you.
Training and Events During Covid-19
Unfortunately face to face training and events are currently on hold due to Covid-19. However we are running a number of online networking and training sessions. We have the following webinar topics running in September for London-based organisations:
- Aggressive and Difficult Behaviours
- Statutory Overcrowding
- Introduction to Universal Credit during Coronavirus
- Telephone Skills
To express an interest in booking a webinar place, please complete the booking form. Shelter will confirm your place at least a week before the webinar.
Good practice events and networking forums - online while face to face events are on hold due to Covid-19
Our good practice spotlight events and forums focus on the latest policy, innovation, good practice and research in the homelessness and related sectors. They are open to London-based borough officers, frontline staff and landlords and offer fantastic networking opportunities. Details of upcoming events will be advertised in the monthly PLUS newsletter and on Homeless Link's website.

Our training courses cover a wide range of topics including:

Special Initiatives work
Between September 2020 and March 2021, the PLUS Project will be carrying out research into the experience of people from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic backgrounds using London's homelessness services.
Policy briefings and homelessness information updates
We send out a monthly email newsletter with the latest homelessness news, consultations, training and events.
We also provide regular briefings on CHAIN data and statutory homelessness trends to keep you up to date with the state of homelessness in London.
The opportunity to feed into consultations and influence decision makers
There are regular opportunities to feed into Homeless Link consultations. If you need support around responding to a particular policy or consultation please London.Plus@homelesslink.org.uk.
