Aim of the project
Our aim was to offer homelessness law training to the support sector to help with effective advocacy and representation.
Upskilling practitioners at the frontline can prevent cases escalating and needing court action and solicitor intervention. With more legal knowledge, frontline staff can deal with homelessness issues at early stages and can challenge the social injustices their clients face.
The Project was funded by the Legal Education Foundation and was completed in March 2023.
The project included a practitioner forum. Partner organisations across Scotland came together and shared knowledge and experience of issues affecting homeless people. We learned from each other to develop best practice.
