As part of our work on food, health and homelessness we are currently offering opportunities for practitioners, policy-makers and all those concerned with this topic to share and learn from each other Scotland-wide. We are currently piloting a series of 3 training events entitled Sharing around food, health and homelessness for all those keen to make practical developments to their food work with homeless people. The first of this pilot series will take place at the Salvation Army in Falkirk on 23 April. The day will include among other things: an introduction to nutrition and diet issues with a homeless angle, case studies based on the Edinburgh Cyrenians’ experience and a plenary session on the needs of your organisation and tailoring good practice to your local context and area/s of work.
If you work with homeless people in Forth Valley and would like to develop your group’s activities around food, health and wellbeing, and wish to attend this event please contact us. Please note that places are limited and will be allocated on a first-come first-served basis. The two remaining pilot days are still to be set up; so, if you work elsewhere in the country and are interested in hosting a similar event, please get in touch with Claire for more information.
