The fourth joint training session took place in Budapest in March 2018. The main aim of the five days cooperation was to complete the full text of the 3 guides. Most of the experts were able to be present personally and those who couldn’t could join by skype. The 3 expert groups spent 3 full days working on the guides and the remaining time was used to give a picture for visiting experts about the supported housing programs of Menhely Foundation and the work of BMSZKI connecting to the support for families experiencing homelessness. Visitors had opportunity to participate in a board game which was developed to raise awareness of the difficulties affecting homeless people.
The fifth joint training session took place in Czech Republic in April 2018. The first two days were held in Prague at the headquarter of Platform for Housing and the last three days were in Brno. During this event the delegates discussed and shared their knowledge and practice about advocacy and awareness raising. We gain knowledge about the housing scheme of the country and some of us had possibility to meet with politicians to discuss about topics connected to the housing situation of Czech Republic. In Brno we get insight in the operation of the ongoing Housing First and Rapid Rehousing programs and get picture about their practice of working with homeless families and the community work with the gypsy families.
