Groundswell has developed resources to support people experiencing homelessness during the current coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Groundswell is a charity that aims to enable people who have experience of homelessness to create solutions and move themselves out of homelessness.

People experiencing homelessness are disproportionately affected by poor health and often face challenges accessing the healthcare and support they need. Measures being taken to combat the spread of coronavirus are likely to impact significantly on the lives of people who are homeless.

In response, Groundswell has produced short, accessible guides on managing health and other related issues for people experiencing homelessness. Many of these are available in a range of languages.

There is guidance for people who are rough sleeping and living in temporary accommodation and tools for planning a local response. The information includes posters in Polish and Romanian. Click the link below to access the resources:
