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 to play a fuller role in our community. We deliver a range of innovative projects which put homeless people at the heart of solutions to homelessness focusing on client involvement, peer research and health.
Groundswell is people-powered
Lived experience of homelessness and using services brings with it a unique insight. It is essential that society utilises this if we are to tackle homelessness effectively. The majority of our work is delivered by people with personal experience of homelessness – with volunteers playing a central and essential role.
