BBC MIDLANDS TODAY - 5 YEAR OLD'S VIEW ON HOMELESSNESS

On Wednesday October 5th, we were visited by Brooke, a five year old girl from Coventry whose message to Teresa May about homelessness went viral. With the BBC, we arranged for her to meet our service user Paul, who faced rough sleeping before we provided him with supported accommodation. The story was shown on BBC Midlands Today on October 6th, which you can find below.  BBC Brooke

“A big thank you to the BBC, our resident Paul and to Brooke and her family for making this happen. She is a wonderful little girl who has raised a lot of awareness of local homelessness.”
