How to work with your colleagues and with people who may be homeless near your premises to provide safety and support for everyone.
‘Sharing Spaces‘ is a guide for city-centre organisations in Manchester to understand how to work with your colleagues and with people who may be homeless near your premises to provide safety and support for everyone. You can download the guideline here.
Homelessness is complex, and the dynamics and challenges are always changing. Unfortunately, there isn’t a straightforward answer for what is the ‘right’ thing to do when working with people who appear to be street homeless near your organisations. What we feel is more important, is the values behind your chosen approach. We hope that the information provided in this guide will help your organisation to:
• Develop your own positive approach to working with people who are homeless
• Improve your response to situations which involve people who are homeless
• Increase your understanding of homelessness
• Inform your staff about what provision is available for people who are homeless
We believe that ALL citizens of Manchester have the right to feel safe, respected, and supported – this includes you, your colleagues, your customers, and people who are experiencing homelessness. This guide has been co-produced through the Manchester Homelessness Partnership (MHP) with businesses, the City Council, the police, and with people who have experienced homelessness.
