Joint Training Session Budapest

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.
