It shouldn't make us complacent, but.....

Interesting article about Finland's approach to homelessness on the BBC website.

It seems they have made dealing with homelessness a priority, in contrast to the UK which deals with it in 'a more traditional way'. The article also points out the number of rough sleepers in England has risen from 1768 in 2010 to 4751 in 2017.

In 1987 Helsinki had 18,000 homeless and now has 6,600.
