Gower Assembly Member, Rebecca Evans, has joined Hollywood star and 'End Youth Homelessness Cymru' Ambassador, Michael Sheen, in pledging her support to put an end to youth homelessness.
Rebecca Evans and Michael Sheen joined First Minister Carwyn Jones at the launch of a new campaign to end youth homelessness in Wales within 10 years. The launch saw politicians, businesses, and third sector organisations promising to working alongside one another to ensure that in 10 years youth homelessness in Wales will be consigned to history.
Rebecca Evans said: "Young people are often homeless because it’s not safe for them to stay at home, or because family life has become too hard. No person should have nowhere to call home.
"Young people can be particularly vulnerable, with homelessness often leading to complex other problems such as mental and physical ill health, and drug and drink dependency. It doesn't have to be this way, and working together I know that we can end youth homelessness."
