Event description

Description

Facilitated by Honorary Member, Mike Rodden, this was the first group to start collecting quantitative data to create a national picture of placement provision across Scotland. The members of the group are keen that Staf provide support in 'flagging up' to the Scottish Government the issue of difficulties in recruiting people to provide this invaluable option for care-experienced young people.

This group is aimed at organisations and corporate parents who provide supported lodgings or supported carers services for care-experienced young people. This focus group gives you the opportunity to discuss any issues and share good practice with colleagues from across Scotland.

Wednesday 14th March 2018

On this occasion Dr Beth Watts, Senior Research Fellow at Herriot Watt University, Edinburgh will be joining the group. Dr Watt is chairing the Community Housing Working Group which is feeding into the Scottish Government convened Homelessness and Rough Sleeping Action Group. Through this group it is hoped that government support can be gained to scale up Supported Lodgings as one part of a better response to youth homelessness.

Members attend for free. A fee of £29.95 will be payable for non-members. Focus group fees are non-refundable.

The meeting will be held at North Lanarkshire Council offices in Motherwell.
