Next Pulse Session | 18 August

Assertive Outreach – Working as joined up system?

Join the Western Australian Alliance to End Homelessness (Alliance) for this Pulse Session.

Come and join us and learn from Brisbane based Micah Projects who are national leaders in assertive outreach practice. This session is pitched at managers/team leaders, policy makers, funders and contract managers and will focus on the framework for outreach to work within a Housing First and collaborative system. While they will be delivering two training days for frontline workers – this session will explore the key elements needed for services to work as a ‘joined up system’. We will build on relevant themes that emerged during the recent NFP workshop on how we can work as a system. This session is a key next step as we learn from Micah and continue to develop a systems framework going forward.
