It is more important than ever that we support the homeless especially with this pandemic where there are little opportunities and many have ended up on the street through lack of support.
Groundswell works with people with experience of homelessness, offering opportunities to contribute to society and create solutions to homelessness. Participation is at their core because the experience of homelessness is crucial in making decisions that affect lives and ultimately help people to move out of homelessness. Groundswell aims to address four key issues: homelessness; health inequalities; lack of participation in service delivery and policy; and a society that does not work for everyone. They achieve this by ensuring people can access health care; offering progression opportunities for people with experience of homelessness; and by creating change in policy and practice.
Zoom link will be sent from Virgin Money Giving straight after donating. Please open your thank you email to find it.
