WINNER: Healthy London Partnership and Greater London Authority – The London Homeless Health Response to Covid-19

Healthy London Partnership and the Greater London Authority worked together to launch London’s Homeless Health Response to Covid-19. Many people who experience rough sleeping needed access to secure and appropriate accommodation to enable continued self-isolation following the pandemic. New relationships have been developed across London boroughs, which have worked more collaboratively than ever.

The project worked with over 20 national and international partners including Médecins Sans Frontières, who for the first time since they were founded in 1971 provided medical assistance in the UK. Around 7,000 homeless people were given safe and secure accommodation and health and support during the pandemic.
