Our Steph was recently featured in the Manchester Evening News – although we wish that wasn’t the case.
Steph has been doing outreach work at Manchester Airport and discovered a disturbing trend.
She says that she and the team usually find a number of people bedding down at the Airport, but over the last three months, they’ve encountered three rough sleepers in their seventies. They’ve now been placed in temporary accommodation, but the Airport remains an attractive place for rough sleeping – it’s warm, safe, dry and there’s access to toilets. Some go there every night to sleep, others land there and stay because they’ve nowhere else to go.
