Welcome to Homelessness Matters, a podcast by Emmaus.

We take a fresh approach to understanding homelessness.

In every episode, you’ll listen to someone who has actually experienced homelessness, sharing their real stories. In Season Two, we go beyond individual experiences and also ask important questions. Is homelessness just about a few people’s own situations? We think there’s more to it. By talking to experts, we explore how larger factors in our society can lead to homelessness.

Each episode will explore a different topic, featuring a guest who has faced homelessness and been supported by one of 30 Emmaus communities across the UK. We’ll release new episodes every fortnight up to early December, so don’t forget to subscribe so you don’t miss any.
