Q Shelter event on social outcomes for the community housing and homelessness sector

Q Shelter: Valuing the Invaluable: Social Outcomes Workshop for the Community Housing and Homelessness Sector
Monday 7 August 2017
Maida Lilley Centre
1/5 Green Close Fortitude Valley

We invite you and your staff to be a part of our first Social Outcomes Workshop for Community Housing and Homelessness.  How do you describe your value as an organisation? How can we show our value as a sector?
In this workshop we will discuss what is already being done to measure social outcomes – in local organisations and elsewhere.  Workshop discussions will seek your views on: What is the purpose of having a social outcomes framework, what could we use it for, and what would it look like?

If you are already measuring social outcomes, please contact the project manager Marion Norton on 0419657306
RSVP by 1 August: Please register here .  Q Shelter Members $30   Non-members $50


Synthesis Series

The Synthesis Series are reflective practice sessions engaging practitioners from all sectors.  The series facilitates dialogue on questions and conundrums embedded within policies, practices and service delivery aimed at ending homelessness. The topics are drawn from U1R’s own work to pilot multiagency case coordination.  These discussions will debate important and sometimes complex issues that characterise responses to homelessness.  The theme of synthesis highlights the challenge of transforming seemingly competing issues into new ways of doing things that get results.

Previous topics have included:

  • The housing offer
  • Measuring integration and collaboration
  • Motivational interviewing
  • Privacy and coordination: a synthesis
  • Assertive outreach and support versus self determination: challenging the practice of doing nothing
  • Hope on the horizon: imagining a different tomorrow
  • The psychology of collaboration: have we got what it takes?
  • Does place matter?
  • Peer leadership models
  • Under 1 Roof: a case study in service integration
  • Sustaining tenancies
  • The practice of informed consent
  • Visioning the future.

Under 1 Roof Training Series

Under 1 Roof is developing opportunities for more in-depth sessions with a focus on practice in key areas such as planned support, tenancy sustainment, case coordination and community development.
