In this Reboot Republic, Rory talks to Sharon Crandall, who is homeless and has been living in her car in West Kerry for three months. She describes the current situation of trying to find housing as being like the hunger games. This is a powerful podcast where Sharon outlines what her experience of being homeless has been, the devastating impact on her mental health, her sense of herself, she describes as feeling like she has disappeared, grieving the life she had before.
She describes how home is your anchor, and without it you are left devastated. She also sets out what the Government should do, bringing the 166,000 vacant properties into use, and the need for others to show compassion to those who are homeless, a cup of tea and a chat goes along way.
