Best practice in accessing employment
People who use homelessness services often have challenges and needs that may put them at a disadvantage in the job market. Homelessness organisations as a whole or individual workers may consciously and or unconsciously take a view on if this will be preventative in them accessing employment and if they are ‘work ready’.
We have two speakers, employment specialists from both homelessness and mental health services, giving valuable insight and experience in accessing employment.
