Illustrated Short Stories and Poems about Being Homeless. Home Truths has been written, drawn and photographed by young people living at hostels in the East of England. The contributors have told some tough and uncompromising stories. They have experienced broken homes, bereavement, drug addiction, physical abuse and mental health problems. All have been keen to tell their stories, so that others might better understand some of the problems they have faced and overcome. Many of the stories have positive outcomes, and provide insights into the available support networks and the help they can provide. We hope this book will prove a unique and valuable cross curricular resource for secondary schools. With this in mind, we have included suggestions on the types of creative activities the book might support in a classroom or youth club setting. There is also a signposts section, for any reader who might be facing similar problems, and is looking for support or guidance.
