Transatlantic Practice Exchange 2018
The Transatlantic Practice Exchange is supported by the Oak Foundation and delivered in partnership with the National Alliance to End Homelessness. Placements are funded for five frontline homelessness staff to spend a fortnight in the United States, exploring different practice topics and sharing this learning on their return. Five participants from the US will be hosted by services here. The Exchange aims to inspire new approaches to ending homelessness, and to develop future leaders in the sector.
The UK participants are:
- Ed Addison, St Mungo's in London - responding to long-term street homelessness through multi-disciplinary outreach
- Flora Newbigin, Cardboard Citizens in London - using theatre to involve people with lived experience
- Rachel Inman, Elim Connect Centre in Wells - peer support and community involvement in rural homelessness settings
- Rachel Woolf, The Manna at St Stephen's in London - coordinated entry systems in rough sleeping responses
- Steven Barkess, VOICES in Stoke - involving people with lived experience in employment, peer specialist and strategic roles
And from the US:
- Cassy Westmoreland, United Way of Weld County - understanding Housing Act implementation, hosted by the Welsh Local Government Association in Swansea
- Jessica McKown, Allegheny County Dept of Human Services - the impact of co-production on positive outcomes, hosted by Expert Citizens in Stoke
- Lauren Dreyer, Integral Care - coordination and multi-agency working for better outcomes in criminal justice, hosted by Exeter CoLab
