The truth about homelessness

There’s no one single cause of homelessness. And contrary to the myths – no one ‘chooses’ to be homeless.


The lives of the people in the stories below were deeply affected by illness, tragedy, abusive homes, drugs and mental illness. We’ve changed their names in order to protect their identities (and used actors to represent them) however these are real stories about real people.

Today, they are all doing well and rebuilding their lives... thanks to the kindness of extraordinary people like you.
