The new alliance formed to end homelessness in Glasgow is seeking to hear from stakeholders in the city as it prepares to develop its strategy.
While the Glasgow Alliance to End Homelessness supports commissioned homeless services across Glasgow, it said this plan will determine its approach, direction and priorities over the next three years.
The Alliance wants to hear from people living and working across Glasgow on what they think the priorities for the new strategy should be.
He is open to hearing views and new ideas from anyone with an interest in ending homelessness, but in particular:
- People living and working in Glasgow
- People with personal experience of homelessness
- People working on the frontline of homeless services
- Statutory and Third Sector Services
- Organizations, services and community groups working in the areas of primary and secondary care, health, mental health, addictions, recovery, community justice, emergency services, etc.
To support this, a series of events and engagement activities are planned to gather views. The Alliance also conducts an online survey and offers engagement packs to allow people to organize discussions with their own groups or teams.
The Alliance’s website reads: “The Glasgow Alliance to End Homelessness is a radical and new approach; he recognizes that “more of the same will not be enough”, and we can try things differently. Getting involved in shaping our new strategy is an opportunity to directly influence the transformation and delivery of homeless services, and help end homelessness in Glasgow.
