John Driscoll

City Care Navigator

John is a HHPA Project Worker. His job is to support rough sleepers to deal with the challenges and barriers that are put in front of them; specifically those in the City who are particularly hard to reach and cut off from services. John works closely with the outreach teams identifying individuals with health needs who are not accessing services. As he explains: “Having been homeless I understand the reasons why people struggle and also why services struggle to reach those that might need them most. This is where Groundswell really helps – we are the bridge. I passionately believe that clients have the right to be treated with dignity and empathy and because of this address their own health issues and see their own lives get back on track.”
