Working with our volunteers – people who have slept rough and those residing in hostels and temporary accommodation and our #Healthnow partners – Groundswell has produced resources for helping those who are homeless during the coronavirus pandemic.
These guides are based on current guidance from the NHS England, Public Health England and the Department for Work and Pensions; with messaging adapted so people who are homeless can apply it to their current situation. The guidance has had clinical approval.
These guides are designed to be printed on a standard A4 printer and can be folded down into a booklet. They can be printed in black and white. Please print these and distribute to people experiencing homelessness.
Access all our guides online, download as PDF’s to view or print:

In addition to producing specific advice for people who are homeless during the coronavirus pandemic,in collaboration with our #HealthNow partners we have also developed resources to support local task force planning for COVID-19 response for people who are experiencing homelessness.

We know that planning and response to coronavirus is moving quickly and we will be updating these documents based on national guidance, feedback from partners and our ongoing consultation with people who are experiencing homelessness.
