From the Ground Up

From the Ground Up is a collaboration between Groundswell and The Pavement Magazine. Our volunteer Peer Journalists use their lived experience of homelessness to report on issues that are important to homeless people and explore solutions.

From the Ground Up

We report on the issues that matter to people experiencing homelessness and work to identify solutions, led by people who know best – those who have been there themselves. Our Peer Journalists are trained and supported to use their lived experience to work with homeless people. Then take their findings directly to service staff, policy makers and people experiencing homelessness to bring about change.

‘Suicide’ Feature Edition

The latest edition of the pavement is out now. Our journalists investigated the reported suicide epidemic currently affecting homeless people. This edition shines a light on the causal factors of suicide and offers suggestions on how to stay safe. Click here to view the latest edition.
