The majority of people who sleep on the streets, and in hostels and night shelters, are men. However, the number of women, particularly younger women, in these circumstances has increased (Anderson et al., 1993). They are often people with complex care and support needs, which go way beyond the provision of accommodation. But, as you will learn in this course, Homelessness, and need, complex needs are both a cause and a product of homelessness.

In this audio course, you will hear from four people, who will each be talking about their own experience of homelessness – John, Danny, Ernest, and Paul. These audio clips were recorded in 1999. Participants in the audio clips:
  • Helen Robinson is the presenter;
  • Julia Johnson is a member of the Open University (1999);
  • John, Danny, Ernest, and Paul are all homeless (1999).
