As the Take Notice Project comes to the end of three years of funding, staff and members have put together a Good Practice Guide to share some of our learning from the project as well as some of the highlights and achievements. This guide is intended to offer some advice and tips to other organisations who are thinking about getting involved with service user participation. It is also a chance to share the good practice we have seen in housing and homelessness organisations in Wales so that others can benefit.

After you have watched the film, we really would appreciate your feedback. It only takes two minutes to answer this short questionnaire, please click the link here.

Take Notice members also wanted to create a short booklet to share their stories and challenge some of the myths and stereotypes surrounding homelessness. To see our accompanying “Leaving the myths behind booklet”, please follow this link. If you or your organisation wishes to receive a printed version, please get in touch.

Take Notice is an exciting project funded by the Big Lottery for three years to improve housing and homelessness services across Wales.

We want to give people who have experienced homelessness and bad housing a voice and to support them to lead a positive change in the way that the services they use are planned and delivered in Wales.

We offer full support and training and a range of activities to help participants to contribute to this process in the way that suits them best. You can be involved in a way that you decide!

At Take Notice we are always interested in hearing from new potential project members who would like to share their experiences of homelessness or bad housing. If you think you might like to be part of Take Notice, then please feel free to contact us to find out more.

Please share our Take Notice poster or leaflet to share in your workplace or email to your contacts.

Download our project poster and share with your colleagues.
