Information for Places of Welcome Coordinators
2016 Network Event:
For 2016 we are planning one event to get together as many Places of Welcome as possible across the West Midlands. Plans and logisitcs are still coming together but please put Thursday 11th June in your diaries and more details will be posted as things develop.
2015 Network Meetings:
The network agreed to meet twice a year and as well as catching up we agreed it would be useful to have some training and awareness on particular issues. The network identified two issues to explore in our meetings this year, and they are mental health and benefits & sanctions.
The hope is that these sessions will support you as coordinators at Places of Welcome to better understand these issues and thus better help and signpost people to the right support.
- Tuesday 24th March, on Benefits and Sanctions, led by Coventry Law Centre. Handouts from that session can be downloaded below, however please note that this does not include subsequent welfare changes.
- Monday 21st September, 1.30 - 4.30 pm - Mental Health Awareness session, led by Birmingham and Solihull Mental Health Foundation Trust
