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.

Tools for planning a response to Coronavirus

Groundswell believe that comprehensive local planning is key to mitigate against the disproportionate impact of the COVID-19 outbreak on people experiencing homelessness. While planning and enacting our response to coronavirus we have heard calls for local cross-sector plans to be put in place for people who are experiencing homelessness.

We know that planning processes are moving quickly, and it may not be possible to involve people who are homeless in decision making. We hope that these resources can support their people who are experiencing homelessness to have their concerns heard in planning processes. Plans should be shared and adapted based on local feedback from people who have experience of homelessness.

This document is intended to be a live document and has been developed by Groundswell in a short timescale. It doesn’t claim to represent the views of a broad range of people across the country.
