Groundswell (Inclusive solutions to homelessness)

< Back to directory

Overview

Groundswell is a registered charity which exists to enable homeless and vulnerable people to take more control of their lives, have a greater influence on services and play a fuller role in our community.

Groundswell exists to enable people who have experience of homelessness to create solutions and move out of homelessness – to benefit our whole society. Participation is at their core because people have the right to be involved in decisions that affect their lives; this leads to better insight and better decisions.
 

Ways they help:

#HealthNow: it is a UK wide campaign that aims to work towards an inclusive health system where everyone has access to the health care they need; ultimately moving people out of homelessness.

The Groundswell Homeless Health Peer Advocacy (HHPA): is a service that supports people experiencing homelessness to address physical and mental health issues. They work to improve people’s confidence in using health services and increase their ability to access healthcare independently.

Learning and development: all learning and development work is led by people with direct experience of homelessness and all training activities are co-produced and co-delivered with those closest to the experience.

Progression Programme: coaching to help all volunteers and staff with experience of homelessness identify their goals and overcome the barriers
