Visits and Exchanges

LHF makes funding available for study trips for students on the Leadership and Management Course.

There is still much to be gained from visiting European countries, especially how Brexit might impact on the UK.  We know that we can learn a lot from how other societies and cultures tackle homelessness and try to provide solutions.  By sharing our ideas and seeing what others do, everyone can benefit.   We want to focus on Europe, especially as European migration has one of the biggest impacts on homelessness in the UK.  However, if there are other proposals that have a compelling case, we will consider those.

The purpose of the study trips is to enhance understanding of homelessness and allied services in the UK by seeing what is happening in other countries.  This may range from examples of good practice in other countries to how countries with very little in the way of resources manage to deal with homelessness to how disaster-stricken areas cope with the emergencies they face.
