#homes4homeless will be attended by a number of high-profile guest presenters, including Eddie Izzard, Steve Coogan, and Zoe Lyons and will be a good opportunity to get an understanding of HOMELINK’s work – the event will include personal stories from the clients they have helped, who come from all walks of life and situations.
Zoe Lyons Gala presenter, said: “Young lesbian and gay people are estimated to comprise up to a quarter of the youth homeless population in Britain. Unbelievably parents reject their own children and many of them can also tragically be abused, not by some stranger, but within their own family. And when they flee the protection their parents should have given, they are exposed to all kinds of violence and aggression. HOMELINK can step in and, by listening without judgement when others have turned their backs, be the home from home which enables that young person to regain their balance and safely start to be who they are. HOMELINK offers a unique service for some of our most vulnerable young people.”
HOMELINK’s #homes4homeless Gala will be held at Glyndebourne Opera House on Sunday, November 17 from 3pm.
