DWP Working Together Report October 2015

Please note that NERHG is a third party partner and not part of Youth Homeless North East

This report outlines actions that were identified at the DWP Working Together workshops

The responses to joint working were very positive, and making key contacts within Jobcentre Plus but equally within the homelessness sector has been really valuable. There have been structural and staffing changes since the workshops took place and we will be endeavouring to keep contacts up to date here.

Effective communication has been a key feature of the workshops and the ‘Partnership Agreement Template’, which was piloted in Sunderland and will be rolled out in the north of the region very soon, is a key tool in facilitating better communication in the future. Youth Homeless North East and Homeless Link will continue to work together with DWP to support the implementation of the template across the region as part of a phased roll out. We plan to review progress in 2016.

Evaluation feedback is also incorporated into the report.
