a spe­cial chil­dren in Need film made by Strictly star Stacey Doo­ley, in­ves­ti­gat­ing the grow­ing and of­ten hid­den prob­lem of home­less­ness among young peo­ple. She meets four teens who have nowhere to call home, to find out why it hap­pened, how they cope and what help is out there for them. The ma­jor­ity of young peo­ple are home­less be­cause fam­ily re­la­tions have bro­ken down, which is what hap­pened to Josh, who is now 18. Stacey also meets Cat and Shelby, two teenagers liv­ing rough in Manch­ester, and Mil­lie in Devon who moved out of her fam­ily home at just 14. A mov­ing film high­light­ing the shock­ing num­ber of young peo­ple who don’t have a safe space to call their own.
