Wisdom from Housing

Last year, Platfform and Caredig partnered with the New System Alliance to conduct a ‘Wisdoms’ piece of work – listening to staff and tenants. Caredig had committed to moving towards a trauma informed way of working, and were interested in how that felt to people on the ground.

Platfform used the ‘Wisdoms’ approach, developed by Mayday Trust, to engage in deep listening exercises across the organisation to see what went well, what could be improved, and also develop learning for other organisations going on that journey.

The report is published at this event.

See the agenda:

11:00 – 11:05: Welcome and Introduction
11:05 – 11:10: Platfform’s Journey
11:10 – 11:35: The Caredig Journey

Staff will share Caredig’s trauma-informed journey, what the organisation has learned along the way, and what the Wisdoms approach has helped them with in the short and longer term.

11:35 – 11:50: System Learning

A short overview of key learning or ideas to take forward as a sector, particularly in RSLs, that could help other organisations move towards a trauma-informed way of being.

11:50 – 12:15: Q&A
