Homeless and insecurely housed people in Hastings


Can digital help rough sleepers get the health support they need?

Working with Seaview, a homeless charity, we are exploring the ways that access to digital can give trusted health information and improve outcomes for the homeless or insecurely housed. We are trialling ways that digital can increase access to healthcare and also change behaviours through knowledge.

As a wave 2 NHS WDP Pathfinder, Good Things Foundation worked with Seaview, Hastings and Rother CCG, St John's Ambulance and the local library service.
