Taking Action for Health First!

Acting on our insight

Groundswell believes that solutions can be found to tackle the health inequalities faced by people who have been homeless.  We believe that people with experience of homelessness must be involved in crafting those solutions.

Our Peer led research and advocacy gives us a unique insight into the problems people face which prevent them from getting access to the care and treatment they need.  With this insight we can create solutions.  Many of these solutions can be found in the recommendations from our reports which can be found here.

We also design and deliver solutions to break down barriers through direct action.

Access to Health Care

We have designed a simple solution to help homeless people register with a GP and prevent them being turned away due to lack of proof of address, ID or immigration status.  To find out more and get involved visit our ‘My Right to Healthcare’ page.
