EQUALITY 4 MEN

The Global Campaign for Men and Boys

Challenge 8: How will you end male homelessness?

120 reasons #80

Homelessness is a clear sign that our society isn’t working for everyone.

With 72% of homeless people having mental health problems and 82% having physical health problems, it is shocking but not surprising that they are nine times more likely to kill themselves and die 30 years younger than the rest of the population.

Homeless men are more likely to have been in care, excluded from school or separated from their father as a boy. It is our failure to give boys a good start life that leads to 90% of rough sleepers being men—and our failure to help men with their problems that keeps them there.

Tackling homelessness as a gender problem could help us become more effective at the many other issues that disproportionately affect men and boys. We invite all political parties to consider what action they take to address male homelessness.
