Between November 2022 and February 2023, Homeless Link facilitated a 4-part Community of Practice (CoP) series on ‘involving & recruiting people with lived experience’ that LEAF participated in. The purpose of the series was to delve deeper into how we recruit, involve, offer volunteering opportunities, and respectfully pay people with lived experience. The sessions provided a safe place for organisations across England to reflect, build relationships, share best practice, and ultimately create change.
This briefing, which can be read on the Homeless Link website
, outlines the key findings and learning from discussions held across the CoP series. It also provides links to existing toolkits and guidance for further reading and exploration.
