Homelessness can mean sleeping rough, staying in emergency hostels or shelters, staying in temporary bed and breakfast accommodation or staying with friends and relatives when there is nowhere else to go.
There are many reasons why a person becomes homeless; in Simon we deal with them all working with up to 5,000 people every year.
Causes of Homelessness
Once a person becomes homeless, the deterioration in their physical and mental health can be both rapid and debilitating.
