Journalist Daniel Lavelle on his experience of homelessness and what it taught him about the impact of government cuts
“It’s almost like I’d been prepared for it my entire life. I mean, it’d be more of a surprise if I hadn’t ended up homeless.”
Journalist Daniel Lavelle tells Nosheen Iqbal about how he ended up pitching a tent at the side of a bridle path in 2013. He was 26 and had been living in a small flat in Greater Manchester, but after months of abusing alcohol, struggling with depression and tragedies in his family, he ended up in arrears.
