AbstractThe shameful impact of the housing crisis was recently highlighted by the Ombudsman for Children in his report – No Place Like Home – which captured the views and experience of children living in Family Hubs. Children consulted by the Ombudsman described how they feel shame, embarrassment, sadness and anger for the circumstances they are living in. Children also felt a sense of unfairness as they struggle to understand why they do not have a home.
