Information regarding this event which will be held online on 23rd February 2021, 1-3.30pm :-
This event explores how adopting a trauma-informed approach to housing and homelessness can help drive forward improved outcomes as part of Scotland’s roadmap to COVID-19 recovery, renewal and transformation.
As part of the programme of support available to professionals working across local authorities and other community planning partners, the Improvement Service, in partnership with the Scottish Government and NES, are hosting a series of deep dive learning events over 2020-21. Each event aims to explore how adopting a trauma-informed approach can support key community planning priorities and support professionals to identify tangible steps to help ensure this approach is embedded in policy and practice moving forward.
Responding to trauma is, now more than ever, a public health priority. The COVID-19 pandemic has, and will continue to, impact many people’s housing situation, due to increased risks such as financial challenges, domestic abuse and other forms of trauma and complex needs. The pandemic continues to also impact the housing and homelessness workforce across Scotland. As housing professionals work to respond to the heightened risks facing people and communities as a result of the pandemic, this event provides a valuable opportunity to develop awareness of the prevalence and impact of trauma on people requiring support from housing and homelessness services, strengthen understanding of trauma-informed practice and policy, and build a trauma-informed approach into long-term recovery, renewal and transformation.
This free interactive learning event is open to all professionals in Scotland working to improve outcomes for people requiring support from housing and homelessness services in their local authority area who wish to learn more about trauma-informed practice, systems and services.
The event will provide opportunities to:
• Learn about the impact of trauma and what a trauma-informed approach looks like;
• Learn from existing good practice and how a trauma-informed approach can support improving outcomes for people requiring support from housing and homelessness services;
• Hear about existing resources and support for implementation of a trauma-informed approach through the National Trauma Training Programme; and
• Discuss how a trauma-informed approach could support your area of work and organisation and identify tangible actions that can help embed a trauma-informed approach in your area of work.
Developed by the Improvement Service, in partnership with NHS Education for Scotland and the Scottish Government, this free interactive learning event is open to all professionals working to improve outcomes for people requiring support from housing and homelessness services in their local authority area and who wish to learn more about trauma-informed practice, systems and services.
