What is the seminar about
A team from Treasury recently spent some time with the Wellington Soup Kitchen and Wellington City Mission where we gained insight about what they do and the people they engage with everyday. We found this experience so valuable that we have invited Steve Flude and Tric Malcolm to come and share a bit of their world in this wider forum. What does the journey of someone who accesses their services look like? Where does it intersect with policy? What could solutions look like? What solutions are we already engaged in? How can you be a part of creating solutions? Come and explore questions like this and many more as we dig into the insights from the Te Mahana – Wellington City strategy around homelessness, the multi agency homeless street outreach team, and the stories for those who access these social services from right across the greater Wellington region.
