People who are homeless are hit especially hard by the coronavirus outbreak. But together we can get vital care to vulnerable people.
It’s hard to protect yourself from the coronavirus outbreak when you’re homeless. People who are sleeping rough are more likely to suffer from respiratory conditions. They can’t wash their hands. And if someone is sleeping rough or in a crowded night shelter, it’s impossible to self-isolate.
The generosity and resolve of the public at this time is inspiring. And by pulling together we can make a difference.

I was 20 when my family was evicted from our home. I was too old to go with them into supported housing and suddenly found myself alone. After briefly living with my uncle I ended up spending nine months in a youth hostel. When I was told I was homeless it was a massive reality check.
