The Young and the Homeless
factual / 10.45pm (times vary) / BBC1
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.
