Campaign: To help young people on the streets find support

I know what it is like to be homeless and as such, how difficult it can be to find support.

 

Accessing appropriate services can be hard when you're on the streets, as I don’t think there is enough information out there for young people who are in need.

 

I'm concerned that young homeless people might not be aware of the services that are out there or know how to utilise them.

 

For my campaign I helped create a film to show how homelessness does not discriminate, as it can affect anybody – regardless your race, gender or background.

 

The resource also provides helpful links and numbers to aid those who are seeking further information.

 

Ending up without shelter can happen to anyone and I want to make sure there are helpful resources in place for those in need of assistance.

Here is a list of Fixers helping me with my Fix:

 

Darrel Miskimmmin-Knox

Demi-Lee Adair

Eoin Hudson

Kerri McCullagh

Kristina Piscuin

Matthew Thompson

Paul Duffy

Thomas Yazynski

My Fixers film is complete! Click play below to watch.

 


I really hope that this project is just the beginning for me.

 

I want to take my campaign to politicians and other influential people who may be able to make a difference on this issue. I want to make a change and I intend to continue campaigning for homeless people.
