Students hear about issues affecting the young homeless

Students studying A Level English at Gower College Swansea welcomed representatives from the Swansea Young Person’s Homelessness Project in to classes recently.

Tutor, Emma Smith, explained: “Our AS English Language and Literature students have been studying a novel called 'Stuart: A Life Backwards' which gives an excellent insight into the life of someone who lives on the streets. It's a challenging book following the life of a homeless young person, and having SYSHP come into class was really interesting as it further raised awareness of the complex issues surrounding homelessness and young people.”
