Far From Alone

Homeless is not inevitable but remains an all too persistent problem in Britain in 2017. New evidence from Shelter sets out the  full scale of recorded homelessness.

These worrying trends have prompted us to launch an emergency appeal and demands ambitious new direction from government to tackle the underlying causes of homelessness.
