Raising awareness of in-work homelessness

Raising awareness of in-work homelessness

Background

Despite thousands of people working while homeless, there is very little understanding of what it’s like to try and hold down a job when you don’t have a home and have to spend your nights rough sleeping, sofa surfing, or moving from one unsuitable temporary accommodation to the next.

Being fired because you’re homeless, needing to sleep under an office desk, or washing in canteen toilets are just some of the difficulties that we’ve heard from people experiencing homelessness while working.

We want to raise awareness of in-work homelessness across England, Scotland and Wales. We want to show what impact it has on people’s lives, the daily frustrations and challenges it brings and what can be done to ensure no one has to live like this.
