Groundswell is a registered charity, which exists to enable people experiencing homelessness to take more control of their lives, have a greater influence on services and have a full role in our community.
Since 1996 Groundswell have been supporting homeless people to be involved in delivering solutions to homelessness – including peer research, client involvement and tackling the health inequalities associated with experience of homelessness..
Our work includes our Health First approach to tackling homeless health inequalities. This includes our award winning Homeless Health Peer Advocacy service which supports homeless people to address their health needs and our Insight and Action Programme which takes a radical grassroots approach to uncovering the issues faced by homeless people and crucially, develops achievable solutions.
We support organisations to take peer led approaches to design and delivery of services and participatory methodology.
