Resources from our November Full Network Event

Thanks again to everyone who attended the GMHAN & GMCA full Network Event: How do we improve Employment, Training & Education support for people who have experienced Homelessness? It was great to see so many of you there

The day started with presentations on The Cost of Living Crisis- The Impact on Employment, Training & Education from GMPA and Employment, Training & Education as Homelessness Preventionfrom GMCA. You can check out the slides from all presentations here

We asked attendees to share knowledge around what Employment, Training and Education provisions are available and what gaps there are in services across Greater Manchester- You told us What you thought was available and What you thought was missing

Next we had an amazing poetry break from Invisible Manchester, the poem was part of the Refuge from the Ravens project which will be coming to Bury Art Gallery in February, and you can buy the Ravens book here. Invisible Manchester have also shared a collection of poems in their Writing on the Wall publications, which you can support on their Go Fund Me page if you are interested.

 We rounded up the day with four workshops, each focused on a different element of employment, training or education, and the barriers that are faced by people who have experienced homelessness
