LISTEN AGAIN | NEWS IN FOCUS SE01EP41 The Big Snore - Changing Perceptions On Homelessness

You can now hear this weeks News In Focus program again, which looks at Framework's Big Snore event and how it's changed the way those who took part, view homelessness. 

Nearly 140 people spent last Friday evening camped under the stars at Vision West Nottinghamshire College’s Derby Road site, raising vital money for Framework as the issue of homelessness continues to rise beyond anticipated levels.

Over £10,000 has already been raised, and during this week’s show – we’ll hear messages of encouragement as those taking part call upon the public to help beat that total.  Also, some of those taking part share their story and we ask the question – has the event, changed their perception of homelessness?

Zoe Kukan is a former framework employee who specialised in mental health work, after taking part in the event, she said “we only got a taste of what it’s like to actually be homeless, we still ultimately had warm and loving homes to come back to – a lot of the people that I worked with didn’t have a network of support.”

“All the support networks they did have weren’t good for them, either they were a group they would often drink with and it’s very hard to get away from that and to start a fresh without having literally to reinvent yourself”

More details on Framework, the work they do and the challenges they face – can be found here http://www.frameworkha.org/
