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.
