On November 21st 2018 Arch Health CIC and the Brighton and Hove Frontline Network (facilitated by Justlife in partnership with St Martin’s Frontline Network) hosted the very first local Homelessness and Health Conference at the Friends Meeting House. Prior to the event frontline workers from across the city were asked to submit their suggestions for subjects to be covered in the day and the timetable was developed from those suggestions.
The morning was designed for frontline workers with clinicians joining for the afternoon. 91 delegates attended all or part of the day, one third of whom were clinicians.
Conference attendance was free, lunch tea and coffee were also provided free of charge. We believe this made the event very accessible and added to the sense of community which permeated the day.
We received feedback from 30 different delegates. 26 said they would attend future events. Collectively they scored the event /5 as follows:
Generated new thoughts: 4.3
Overall the Arch Team are very happy with how the day went and will be offering another conference in November 2019. Please check back on this page for details.
