Alison Willmott I work for the YMCA, they're a fabulous, caring charity who do great work, providing accommodation and support for people that need it.Think you're immune from homelessness? Think again...

I am doing Sleep Easy as a member of Extinction Rebellion. Homelessness is being caused by the Climate Emergency RIGHT NOW. From displacement caused by floods and fires around the world, to UK coastal areas on the brink of being uninhabitable due to climate change and rapid erosion, the effects of the climate emergency are plain to see. Closer to home, the pictures of storms and floods, of people being evacuated from their homes, remind us that extreme weather events are becoming the new 'normal'. They shouldn't be.
