Stories from the Street


“You’ll never really understand a person until you consider things from their point of view, until you climb inside their skin and walk around in it” – Atticus Finch



Stories from the Street is a short collection written by seven young people who have all had experiences of being homeless.

Each story takes us on a journey through the different circumstances and challenges faces and the part Streetlife Blackpool played in supporting the young people along the way.

Whilst the stories are desperate and heart-breaking at times, this collection is full of hope and inspiration to anybody experiencing tough times, whilst also highlighting failures in the system which must be address.

Names have been changes – but stories are true accounts.
