In this part of our blog series following the Atlas release in Feb 21 we take a look at Winter Shelters, services impacted hugely by the pandemic.

We explore data from the Atlas and draw on a report published by @Housing_Justice

Take a look πŸ‘‡

Some of the areas we identified: testing testing testing; exemptions to isolation are not favoured by our organisations; tight infection control; local, organisational and shared continuity plans including supporting each other in the event of staff shortages

Prevention, planning and prioritising keeping people safe: WHP supports services to share and work together as some are hit by staff shortages & others may be soon due to high numbers isolating.
