Event description

Description

Following on from the 2018 Lent Appeal on Homelessness; Capital Mass is hosting a series of networking and training events to help support all team members involved in hosting and delivering Winter Night Shelters.

  • Are you hosting a Winter Night Shelter?
  • Are you volunteering at a Winter Night Shelter and wanting to raise your awareness and skills?

Then please join with parishes and volunteers from across London as we raise our understanding and confidence to better be able to support the guests we see each night.

This first gathering is on Mental Health and will be delivered by Barney Wells, Director of Enabling Assessment Service London which is a mental health team supporting homeless people across London and the agencies that work with them.

On the night we’ll be exploring:

  • An Introduction to Mental Health
  • The impact that might have on you and the shelter
  • How do we respond as none professionals
  • When is it ok to make a decision on behalf of someone else?
  • …and all the questions that you will have

The aim of the evening is that you’ll leave with a greater understanding of Mental Health and greater confidence in knowing how to support your guests.
