Description

We are excited to announce that Arch and the Brighton & Hove Frontline Network are hosting the second Homelessness & Health Conference in Brighton on Wednesday 20th November 2019.

This free event will provide a valuable opportunity for professional development, improve awareness of homelessness and the related health issues and types of support available.


Who is the conference for?

  • People working or volunteering with those experiencing homelessness

  • GP’s, surgery staff and medical teams

  • Anyone working or engaging with the homeless sector (project managers, local authority commissioners, local councillors etc)


What will be covered?

  • Practical advice and guidance from Arch clinicians and other local professionals on issues that include substance misuse, mental health and managing chronic diseases and more

  • Information about Brighton & Hove services supporting the health and wellbeing of those who are homeless

  • Training for GP’s, surgery staff and medical teams on issues such as managing difficult consultations, prescribing, tri-morbidity and local services.

What’s the cost?

  • It’s FREE! And includes free lunch.

(There will be a £50 charge to those who do not turn up and fail to cancel their booking within 24 hours of the start of the event. We expect to have a waiting list and want as many people to attend as possible)
