Attacked and abused: Why do we dehumanise homeless people?

Crisis loneliness

A new blog post from Richard Bryan at QA Research, who interviewed many homeless people as part of a study for Crisis, looks at some big questions around homelessness.

“As Crisis revealed in their report published in December 2015, one in four homeless people were spending Christmas alone. They are among the most isolated people in our society. What also came through time and again was the extent to which they had been dehumanised by their experiences.”
