Ethnic trends in homeless

 
May 20th 2009
 
Ethnic minorities are more likely to 'sofa surf' among friends and relatives, making them less visible to checks carried out by authorities, Centrepoint has claimed. When this hospitality has run out, most then turn to sleeping in night buses or finding squats, rather than approaching hostels or sleeping in the streets, the charity said. Seventy-two per cent of all Centrepoint users are black or minority ethnic, and the organisation was keen to highlight the growing number during October's Black History Month. TV actor and playwright Kwame Kwei-Armah spoke to young people at an event organised at the Camberwell Foyer service.
