My team of Fixers and I believe family breakdown is often the root cause of young people becoming homeless.
Most of us have personal experience of leaving home following arguments with our families and extended families.
We want to do something to try and prevent family conflict reaching crisis point, to stop other young people ending up on the streets because relationships have fallen apart.
We will use a film to show what can happen if action isn’t taken, and to urge families who are struggling, to seek help, get support and start communicating.

The YMCA have supported our Fixers project. They have helped us arrange meetings and conduct research for our film.
