What’s going on this week? Monday 14th September 2020
A number of charities, including Streets Kitchen and the Glass Door Homeless Charity, are campaigning for empty commercial buildings to become makeshift shelters this winter.
They are predicting that there will be an increase in the number of people who become homeless over the coming weeks and months due to increases in job losses caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Things to talk about at home…
Do you think that using empty buildings to help homeless people is a good idea?
Can you think of any other ways in which we could help the homeless?
Are there any homeless shelters or charities in your local area? Can you find out about the work that they do?
