GHIFT of the Gab

Published:

Do you know someone with lived experience of homelessness who would like to get more involved in influencing policy and services? We are looking for volunteers for the GHIFT; Glasgow Homelessness Involvement & Feedback Team.

GHIFT members are directly involved in facilitating events and conferences, feeding into surveys and taking part in the wider debate around homelessness, but always to a level and degree that the person is comfortable with.

If you or anyone you know has the GHIFT of the gab and would like to talk to other people about how to make homeless services better, come along to our monthly meetings and help us rewire the system.

Next meeting will be held in the Glasgow City Mission, 20 Crimea Street, G2 8PW, 17 January from 2pm – 4pm. If you can’t make that date but would like to get involved, then please contact Kelly on 0141 420 7272 or 07834 437185.

Following on from successfully recording the views of more than 400 people with lived experience for the Housing and Rough Sleeping Action Group (HARSAG) this year, we have also established a national engagement platform called SHIFT that will be rolling out across Scotland in 2019. There will be more information in our January 2019 newsletter about how organisations and individuals can get involved in this exciting new network.
