Key note: Abstract

Peer Support as a method for overcoming Health Inequality.

Groundswell has been delivering their award winning homeless health peer Advocacy Service for 6 years, supporting homeless people to address their health needs. Key to the programme's success is the Peer-led approach where the service is delivered by people who have personal experience of homelessness themselves. Not only has it been demonstrated that the programme has a positive impact on the health and confidence for the people that we work with but it saves money for the NHS and the state. Groundswell are currently developing the model to meet the needs of people who have mental health support needs - supporting people to overcome the barriers they face to accessing support. The presentation will discuss the development of the HHPA programme, how it can be adapted to meeting needs beyond physical health, and the issues we have faced in developing the service.
