What are your views on Homelessness?
-Every day in England, 30 - 42 young people under the age of 25 become Homeless.
-On any given night in England, over 70,000 children/expected children are staying in Homelessness Accommodation
-Every 2 minutes, a Homeowner finds themselves at risk of becoming Homeless.
So, I run a small Homelessness Project in Newcastle upon Tyne in England, and part of that is to research into people's views of Homelessness Internationally, and Locally, so;
What are your views on Homelessness? Are they all addicts, will they ever amount to anything in their life? Do you think they just don't receive the correct support?
Do you think that the numerous stereotypes associated with the word "Homeless" hold alot of people back from taking the small steps towards independent life?
If you have anything else you would like to say then feel free to.
If possible, include where you got these views and opinions from, whether it be the media, through your work, or elsewhere.
I'd also be extremely interested to know about any work you do with regards to Homelessness (If applicable) As I'm only 19 and still, somewhat, inexperienced with everything! I'd love to know what it is you do within the Homelessness System in your city/Country, and how you became involved with it.
