Season 2 | Ep 4 | A Home is a Basic Human Right
Show Notes

Welcome to Homelessness Matters, a podcast by Emmaus. In our fourth episode of season two, we'll be discussing how a home should be a basic human right. The UN states that “housing as a human right, not a commodity. Under international law, to be adequately housed means having secure tenure - not having to worry about being evicted or having your home or lands taken away.” But is this actually happening today?

Listen to Helen, an Emmaus companion who is in the move-on process from Emmaus Brighton. Helen talks about her experience becoming homeless and what the future looks like for her today. We will also be talking to Tim Renshaw, CEO of the homelessness Charity, The Archer Project.

Content Warning: This episode may contain themes that listeners may find distressing. Contains discussions about mental health and swearing.
