In this new Housing LIN guest blog, Jo Stapleton, Good Practice Mentor and Outreach Specialist (former ABC Outreach Manager) at Age UK Camden, shares how to go out into the community to find, approach and engage the people ‘no-one’ knows, including men, BAME communities and individuals less likely to say ‘yes’ to accessing formal services, community activities and support.

Jo shares a simple 3 step approach designed to provide a supportive ‘nudge’ towards participation and an effective response to overcome barriers to resident participation.
