Homelessness has doubled nationally since 2010.
Often it is hidden – sofa-surfing --- as a guest in another person’s house, overstaying one’s welcome at other times it is simply on the street.
While this charity was operating previously over a period of 3 years in Braintree (as BENS), not only was our hostel always full, but it got between 2 & 3 applications every week that had to be turned down because the place was full.
We reckon that the house could have been occupied 4 or 5 times over, judging by the applications. Our small facility is all we have.
