After catching his wife cheating with his best friend, Tom packed a bag and left. Tom is now sleeping rough in London.

A few days ago, someone stole Tom’s bedding, so now he is sleeping rough with no blanket.

Tom has been out by Victoria Station, begging for money trying to get enough for a blanket. Tom shares how panhandling for change is belittling.

Rough sleeping continues to increase in the United Kingdom. Because of the affordable housing crisis, more individuals and families are ending up homeless and often sleeping rough on the streets. If you live in the UK, please reach out to your local and national politicians and demand that they do something about the growing homeless crisis and the lack of affordable housing.
