Peers and Lived Experience

The information and resources here are intended to support your efforts in working with peers and engaging people with lived experience (PWLE) in meaningful ways in your work to prevent and end homelessness.

Below you will find information and tools from a number of sources. Remember, you can also always search on the Homeless Hub and the Homelessness Learning Hub for further information around engaging peers and people with lived experience.

Keep checking back here as we will be regularly updating materials and adding further resources.
