Britain could end homelessness within 10 years with the right measures in place, says a landmark report by the charity Crisis, backed by high-profile figures such as the Archbishop of Canterbury, Dame Louise Casey, and international homelessness experts.

Everybody In: How to end homelessness in Great Britain resets the current approach to homelessness and sets out the exact government policies needed to end it for good. It finds that everyone who is homeless could have a stable home within 10 years if the measures are adopted in full.

Community Reporter Training - Homelessness

30 November, 2017 - 10:00 to 1 December, 2017 - 15:00

We think that people telling their own stories about the experiences that matter to them, and that are important to their lives is powerful stuff. Community Reporting is all about storytelling. At the heart of what we do is helping people to find their voice and describe their own realities through storytelling. We use basic digital skills and pocket technology such as smartphones and tablets to support people to tell their own stories, in their own ways.
