Chronically homeless staying housed after lockdown

From Morning Report, 8:25 am on 8 July 2020

People who have been chronically homeless are choosing to stay in permanent housing - some for the first time in more than 20 years.

Organisations working with rough sleepers say the change in attitudes is "phenomenal".

They are warning it's no time to get complacent about homelessness, especially as new faces start to emerge on the streets.
