Everyone deserves a safe and stable place to live; being homeless can mean sleeping on the streets, sleeping on other people’s sofas or floors, or staying in places that are unsafe. It means not knowing where you are going to rest your head from one day to the next, feeling vulnerable and not in control of your own life.
Statistically (Crisis 2012), at the ages of 16-24, homeless people are at least twice as likely to die as their housed contemporaries with an average life expectancy which doesn’t reach beyond 47. It is of no surprise to realise that life as a homeless person will create mental disease as life is a continual struggle with no safety net to fall back on and no social network to ask for support; the forgotten and invisible homeless.
