Homelessness is on the rise, with more than thirty people becoming homeless in Britain every day. Worse still, between October 2017 and March 2019, more than 800 people died while homeless. This is a national scandal. Yet the issue is rarely discussed and poorly understood.

Come along to find out the facts and how we can all help. In conversation with Anoosh Chakelian, Britain Editor, New Statesman.
