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 nine years HHPA has been operating in London over 130 individuals have completed training to become volunteer Peer Advocates, delivering nearly 20,000 one-to-one appointments and over 5,000 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: hhpa@groundswell.org.uk 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.
