LEAF is an independent group run by and for people with lived experience of homelessness.
LEAF offers Forum members a safe space to come together to look at solutions on how to improve the homeless pathways and connecting services within Oxfordshire. LEAF also recognises that collaborative working and sharing best practice is an important cog to changing systems for the benefit of the people using the services. LEAF encourages and practises sharing of learning and knowledge to also improve services nationally.
Forum members are supported in trying new roles and are offered new opportunities which help build their own confidence and overall wellbeing.
Information about LEAF activities plus co-produced reports and findings and much more can be found on our LEAF Activities
LEAF is an equal opportunities Forum and welcomes the involvement of individuals from all backgrounds. Everyone is welcome!
The Lived Experience Advisory Forum (LEAF) is an initiative that makes homeless provision in Oxfordshire more effective by consulting people with lived experience. LEAF was initiated by Oxfordshire Homeless Movement
and is now being funded by them, thanks to generous donations from local businesses and the public.
This service is provided in partnership with the Gatehouse, Aspire and the Oxfordshire Homeless Movement.
