The POHP won in the category of 'Partnership working in adult care services'. Collecting the award on behalf of the partnership, POHP co-ordinator, GLC's Alistair Sharp was delighted that our innovative approach to preventing homelessness on a sustained and long term basis had been honoured by our peers in Scotland's social care and health professions.
Alistair said: "The award is testimony to the hard work of all of the partners involved, and is fantastic recognition at a time when we hope to further develop our service by providing an even earlier system of intervention to prevent homelessness in the South West Glasgow".
A short documentary film of the work of the POHP can be seen here (opens in Real Player). This is a powerful 15 minute documentary of the work of Govan Law Centre and it's local partners in Glasgow's Southside with respect to their innovative work to prevent homelessness on a sustained and holistic basis.
