HHPA London

Homeless Health Peer Advocacy (HHPA) began in Westminster in 2010, it has since expanded to a wide range of London boroughs. In the 10 years HHPA has been operating in London over 130 individuals have completed training to become volunteer Peer Advocates, delivering more than 23,500 one-to-one appointments and group health promotion sessions.

If you want to book a Peer Advocate to attend a health appointment please call us  to see if we can work with you: 020 7725 2851 or email: [email protected] and someone will get back to you. All referring organisations will then be given a HHPA referral booking form. We will try our best to help with last minute bookings but may not always have someone available.
