The SHS Transition Plan

CHP has been funded by government to develop a Specialist Homelessness Sector (SHS) Industry Transition Plan in partnership with the sector.  This type of government support for the development of our sector is both important and appreciated.  This is an excellent opportunity for us to consider how to further build on the great work that is already being done.  This survey will help to create a robust and effective Industry Transition Plan.
