King’s Community Support Centre (KCSC), which is created and delivered by King’s School of Social Work Field Education program, provides social work support to London’s most vulnerable people, including people at risk of or experiencing homelessness. In the first phase of the program, current shelter service users can receive counselling and support from social work students under supervision at a clinic located within the Salvation Army London Centre of Hope.

In the second phase, social work support will begin with the City of London’s Housing Stability programs, to help address immediate issues affecting service users’ ability to find and maintain housing. The third phase of the program will focus on workforce development: supporting our community of frontline workers with professional development opportunities, options for supervision and events for peer consultation and resource sharing. 

“Homelessness is a community issue so it only makes sense that as a social work program we would be part of the solution while offering our students immense learning opportunities.

M.K. Arundel, Coordinator of Field Education
