In 2018, the Toronto Alliance to End Homelessness hosted a People With Lived Experience reference group who met regularly to discuss and recommend how PWLE should be integrated in the Toronto Alliance to End Homelessness. The group presented a report to the TAEH’s Steering Committee in November 2018 with the following key recommendations:
To adopt a “Nothing about Us Without US” governance model
Creation and support of a PWLE caucus
Establish a mentorship program
TAEH undergo a cultural audit
Hire a PWLE staff member
The Toronto Alliance to End Homelessness will be developing a PWLE caucus in Spring of 2019. You can access the report here.
