A lived experience-led project, championing major change towards better healthcare access and life expectancy for people facing homelessness.


Working in partnership with On Our Radar, we aim to:

  1. Increase key decision makers’ awareness of the barriers to healthcare faced by people experiencing homelessness across the country
  2. Create a movement of people with experience of homelessness, influencing decision makers and holding them to account for changes in practice and policy.

Live reports!

The Listen Up! hub! collates raw reports on the experiences, concerns and feedback of a network of trained community reporters with experience of homelessness.

Living all around the UK, the reporters are using their mobile phones to document their stories.

Through the hub, we elevate their voices, challenge stereotypes, and ultimately help decision makers end harmful health inequalities.

How you can support us

Listen Up! is a movement of people, united in the belief that elevating the voices and raw insights of our reporters will challenge stereotypes and help decision makers end homeless health inequalities.

Here are some ways you can support us and get involved:

1. Join our mailing list for regular hub reports, research findings and event info straight to your inbox.

2. Read and share our series of insights. We will add more throughout the project.

3. SHARE! Please tell people about us through social media and your networks! We’ll be posting regularly from Groundswell’s TwitterFacebook and Instagram pages.
