Support Groundswell this Christmas

Help someone begin their journey out of homelessness

By donating, you could help remove the barriers to healthcare people are facing while homeless, by providing peer advocacy, in-reach services and vital health resources.

We believe good health creates the foundation someone needs to start their journey out of homelessness.

While everyone has a right to healthcare, people experiencing homelessness continue to face relentless systemic barriers to getting the help they need.

This is just not right.

For over 25 years, Groundswell has created proven solutions to homelessness and healthcare barriers by those who have been there.

Over two thirds of our staff and every one of our volunteers has experience of homelessness.

We asked staff and volunteers “What does Groundswell mean to you?”

Here’s what they said…
