Homelessness is one of the biggest issues facing London today. And as the weather gets colder, more and more people are asking how they can help.
Shelter estimates that there are 280,000 people across England who are homeless, with thousands more at risk. And London – with its notoriously sky-high property prices – is the hardest hit, with a shocking 1 in 52 people now homeless in the capital.
It’s easy to feel helpless in the face of such devastating figures. But fear not Londoners, there are simple and easy ways that you can help. From buying a coffee from a café that trains rough sleepers to be top baristas to helping a someone use a website that flags up free accommodation nearby, here are just some of the ways you can help tackle homelessness in London.
