The Frontline Network
The Frontline Network
Who we are
St Martin’s Frontline Network is a network of partner organisations delivering services across the UK, and individual frontline workers, working with homeless and vulnerably housed people.
What we do
We work with partner organisations to deliver local events for frontline workers, focusing on building links between frontline workers and services, as well as sharing best practice and experience around common issues.
We believe that building good relationships is crucial to frontline work – relationships between clients and frontline workers, and between the different agencies working to tackle homelessness and the issues related to it.
As well as working at a local level, we provide opportunities for frontline workers to come together at a national level. On 15th September, we had our first Frontline Network conference where frontline workers from across the UK came together to hear about the work of other services as well as to discuss what the main issues are that they face on a day to day basis, and some of the potential ways of tackling them.
This new website marks the next step in providing opportunities for frontline workers from across the UK to network, share ideas, and develop ideas together that tackle the issues facing your clients – with the potential for funding!
There are ways to get involved through the website – whether it is finding out about a local event that you can attend, posting a question on the forum to get feedback on something you need help with or submitting an idea which you believe should be funded. The Frontline Network is for frontline workers and we will work hard to ensure that it is driven by frontline workers every step of the way, starting with our steering group. But we need you – your feedback and input. This is a work in progress and we want it to develop so that it reflects what you need from it, so we are always open to feedback – simply email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
The St Martin’s Frontline Network has been made possible thanks to the support of Oak Foundation.
