For my research I went to the Porchlight website, read a little bit about them like, Tom Gifford started in 1974, motivated by his own experience of being homeless, Tom Gifford set up Porchlight (formerly the Canterbury Cyrenians) with the aim of encouraging the local community to help homeless people. Recently they have helped over 5,000 people over 2015/16 and continue to help homeless people with their mental health, housing, education and employment. They provide young people and adults with the advice, guidance and skills to live independently in the future, to play an active role in their local community and to fulfill their potential.

I also watched a YouTube video about one story of a young person who was kicked out and was homeless, but  was helped by Porchlight and thanks to their support he is now trying to help others in similar situations, with the help of Porchlight.
