Groundswell believes that experience of homelessness is an asset
Through volunteering, that asset can be used to support others who are experiencing homelessness, and change policy and services to make them more effective.
London Homeless Health Peer Advocates
Homeless Health Peer Advocates (HHPA) support people experiencing homelessness to access health services, increase their confidence and look after their health independently.
If you are based in London, have experience of homelessness and want to find out more, then we would love to hear from you!
First of all, we’ll have a conversation with you to discuss whether the training is right for you.
If you join the training, Groundswell will:
- train you fully to take on the HHPA role
- cover your expenses
- support you to access further training
- help you develop your skills and build a CV.
You’ll have an initial induction session, then attend a training course on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays spread over three weeks in July 2022.
Induction session: either 29 or 30 June (TBC)
Training days, week 1: 5, 6 and 7 July
Training days, week 2: 12, 13, 14 July
Training days, week 3: 19, 20, 21 July
