National homelessness charity, Crisis, have published a report following research conducted by Qa titled: ‘Experiences of loneliness and isolation amongst homeless people’.
Drawing on a survey of more than 500 people and qualitative interviews conducted by Qa Research in homeless day centres across the country, the report reveals the extent of loneliness and isolation amongst homeless people, the stigma they experience and the heavy toll it takes on their mental and physical health.
It shows how six out of ten homeless people suffer from loneliness, making them some of the most isolated people in our society. One in three has no contact with family, while less than one in four can call on a friend in an emergency.
You can find out more about the results and how we collected the data in the full the report produced by Crisis.
