Striving to enhance awareness and deeper understanding in the principles, methodology and meaning of Social Street Work, Emfasis Foundation published the Greek translation of the guide “On the Street: A practical guide for new social street workers” by Don Irving and Simon Whitmore, members of the UK Federation of Detached Youth. On this occasion, Emfasis organized a two-day Educational – Experiential Workshop at the Cultural Center of Athens municipality, where the two authors presented their work.
Don Irving και Simon Whitmore wrote this guide especially – tailored to the needs of every new social street worker in order to prepare him for his work. This toolkit provides practical tips which are useful for those who do not have the appropriate experience or training and tries to cover the most important queries and dilemmas that Social Street Workers face.
The guide includes tips regarding the ways to approach a person living on the street, knowing that the first contact may be the most significant. Besides the methods of approaching socially vulnerable groups, the guide provides information about useful tools for social street workers as well as tips in order to remain safe during street work.
