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 the community.
Since 1996 Groundswell have been supporting homeless people to be involved in delivering solutions to homelessness – including peer research, client involvement and health.
The work includes the Homeless Health Peer Advocacy service which supports homeless people to address their health needs and the Information for Action Programme which takes a radical grassroots approach to uncovering the issues faced by homeless people and crucially, develops achievable solutions.
The vision is of an equal and inclusive society, where the solutions to homelessness come from the experiences of people who are homeless.
Groundswell exists to enable people who are homeless to create solutions and move themselves out of homelessness – to benefit of the whole society.
