Description

An international and intersectional dialogue on how to reduce harm and promote wellbeing amongst people who have housing, health and substance use challenges.

Plain English Description

£16,130 awarded for the project to create a dialogue on international, national and local best practices to reduce substance misuse and homelessness. We will explore how we can work better together across sectors and disciplines to develop Scottish solutions. We will bring together a diverse group who have substantial knowledge of the issues to develop a nuanced understanding of the current position and how this can better inform policy and practice developments going forward.
