Thank you for being so brilliant to work with!

Utterly loved supporting the fantastic Common Ambition team and the brilliant steering group of people with lived experience of homelessness to help improve how people experiencing homelessness can access healthcare services in a more accessible and inclusive way. Thank you for being so brilliant to work with!

The Brighton and Hove Common Ambition project brings together people with lived experience of homelessness, frontline providers and commissioners through co-production within homeless health services, in order to improve health services and outcomes for people experiencing homelessness in Brighton & Hove. Justlife Foundation and Arch Health CIC partnered to make Common Ambition possible! You can read more about Common Ambition here — https://archhealthcare.uk/common-ambition/common-ambition-launch/

Throughout this project, we identified some of the largest challenges people experiencing homelessness face when accessing health care services, we prioritised these and chose an area to focus on for Common Ambition’s first service design sprint. We co-produced and prototyped a service that could bring together information about a range of healthcare services in an accessible and inclusive way to enable people experiencing homelessness and support workers to find the services that best suit their situations and needs. Case study coming soon!

The photo above is of some thank you cards that I made for the team and steering group. Love a little post-it note thank you card!
