Rough Sleeping

Rough Sleeping

The government figures for Autumn 2012, estimate around 80 people sleep rough across Devon. Thirty in Exeter alone.


JG and a team of BBC Radio Devon colleagues were among 180 volunteers who experienced a night under the stars for Exeter YMCA's Sleep Easy event 2013.


This special documentary investigates some of the reasons young people end up without a roof over their heads and what help is available to them when they find themselves sleeping rough.
