The UK government is a signatory to the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, which sets a six-week legal limit on temporary housing, and stipulates that every child has the right to grow up in a healthy environment.
But thousands of British children without permanent homes are growing up in B&Bs, spending months or sometimes years there. The conditions are often damp, dirty, cold and unsafe.
Demand that the government upholds children's legal rights, to give every child a real home.
For this project, we worked with several young people who have lived in temporary housing, to understand what life has been like for them, and come up with a respectful and effective way to communicate their experiences. The result was shown to MPs at Westminster on the 25th October 2017.
