About Homelessness

Homelessness can happen to anyone regardless of race, wealth, education or opportunity.

It can happen due to relationship breakdown, parental relationship breakdown, domestic abuse, parental neglect or pressure, leaving care, bereavement, unaffordable rents, a landlord ending a tenancy for whatever reason including their own relationship breakdown or financial difficulties. Sometimes Young people find themselves needing to live independently, but without the life skills they need to find a suitable place and maintain their tenancy.

To celebrate SafeSpace’s 10th anniversary in 2010 our young people produced a short film about homelessness, how it affected them and how SafeSpace was able to help.
