The Pavement is a small charity, founded in London in 2005. Every two months we produce a pocket-sized free mag full of news, views, cartoons and a massive list of places that helps you to access services.

Our magazines are written for and by homeless and insecurelyhoused readers in London and Scotland. We’ve used the same principles to make Health & Wellbeing in a Crisis.

We believe that sleeping rough is physically and mentally harmful, but reject the view that a one-size-fits-all approach to getting people off the streets works.

Whatever happens after lockdown, we are always looking for volunteer journalists and photographers to create exclusive content that’s written with our readers in mind. We particularly welcome those who’ve been homeless.

Groundswell aims to create solutions to the causes of homelessness and the impact homelessness has on people's lives. At the core of Groundswell's work is a strong belief in the meaningful involvement of people with lived experience of homelessness in the decision-making process that informs the design, development and delivery of the policies and services that affect their own lives.

Groundswell’s current research aims to understand the impact of Covid-19 and the response across the country on people who are homeless. You can help, see p32.

#HealthNow is a campaign to make sure everyone gets the health care they need. It’s run by Groundswell, Crisis and Shelter to make a better healthcare system through the input from people who are homeless, and there are opportunities to get involved.
