Event description

Description

‘Change happens too fast at the top for the people who can make it happen and too slow at the bottom for the people who need it!’

About the event

This event is brought to you by the Mayday Trust and is being organised and managed by Homeless Link.

There is a lot of talk about Systems Change, but what would that really look like for the homeless sector?

Mayday Trust talks:

  • A vision for the future; a radically new system
  • The Personal Transitions Service (PTS) - the lessons learnt over the last 6 years from moving from a process-led to a person-led system
  • What this means for providers, funders, policymakers and most importantly for the grassroots.

This exciting event poses questions such as:

  • Is the problem we’re trying to address the right problem?
  • Is ending homelessness a reality or is the problem a system that institutionalises people?
  • Can you truly deliver strength-based services within a deficit-based system?
  • What changes should be made to a deficit-based system?
  • Listening and reflection - are organisations up to the challenge of not surviving for survival’s sake?

Mayday Trust, alongside their nine innovation partners, present System Reset which offers the opportunity to:

  • Hear from Mayday Trust and their innovation partners about their experiences and lessons learned from delivering this alternative asset-based approach, changing organisational culture and challenging the system from within!
  • Learn more about the impact of the UK deficit system on people experiencing homelessness
  • Find out how the PTS captures and measures meaningful data
  • Hear from funders, commissioners and social investors about how a different type of funding relationship can allow asset-based work to flourish
  • Find out from the frontline about their experiences of delivering the asset-based approach and how systemic change can support them to do so.

They say it’s harder to stop a movement than it is to stop a single organisation. If you’re not afraid to challenge the status quo to make the system work for people going through tough times, whether you’re a CEO, Senior operational or business development professional within your organisation, a funder, commissioner or social investor, we’d love to see you there!
