Hidden Homelessness: Britain's Invisible City

Image

Hidden Homelessness: Britain's Invisible City . The report gives a stark warning that the numbers of people living out of sight in hostels, temporary bed and breakfast accommodation, squats or sleeping on the floors of friends and family, currently estimated by Crisis at 380,000, is on the rise and is set to reach the one million mark by 2020. Crisis is calling for a homelessness census to be conducted to rigorously count the numbers of Hidden Homeless people across Britain, and to fully understand their needs. You can also download a Background Report that accompanies Hidden Homelessness: Britain?s Invisible City that looks deeper at the issues and references many of the hard facts the report presents. All reports are free to download from the research bank - www.crisis.org.uk/researchbank.

Lost Voices: the invisibility of homeless people with multiple needs . The latest research report in the Hidden Homelessness series is a study by Clare Croft-White and Georgie Parry-Crooke for Crisis Health Action on multiple health needs among individuals who are homeless. Homeless people suffer from extremely high levels of physical and mental ill health. Many are dealing with multiple health problems making them exceptionally vulnerable. There are enormous obstacles preventing these individuals from accessing appropriate care. Through semi-structured interviews with homeless individuals and service providers in health care, homelessness and other relevant agencies, this research sheds light on a recognisable, but under-examined health and care issue.
