This event focuses on the experiences of children and young people who are ‘hidden homeless’ in North Manchester and how this affects their schooling. Young people, their parents, and their schools, will invite the audience to share in their stories, including through vlogs, videos and short performance-pieces created by the young people. The event will then explore what schools and their partners can do in response, the very real limits to this, and what policymakers now need to do.

It aims to raise awareness, create a public outcry, and initiate a policy response to this unacceptable – yet often unseen – situation.
