Description
Youth Rising is a podcast made by young people for young people, with stories from across England. We’ve strictly adhered to the government’s lockdown rules and this episode was recorded entirely remotely. For our 15th episode we’re discussing homelessness. We’ve got a jam-packed episode with interviews ranging from what is homelessness and how we can help, to period poverty and how the situation has changed since the pandemic. Firstly Callen speaks with Jonners Baker from Revive Cafe. The cafe is part of Restore in Sheffield, which looks after vulnerable people in the area from shelters to soup kitchens, they’re supporting the homeless. Pubudika chats to Anita Kerwin-Nye from the Youth Hostel Association, about how they’ve transformed their hostels into emergency accommodation; and Katherine from The Bloody Box Project speaks to Sofie about their campaign against period poverty. And if that wasn’t enough, we’ve also got the Lockdown Lowdown, and it’s all about acts of kindness.
