Take a look into the work of Bideford Town Councillor Kaye Corfe and the hard work that she does to try and combat homelessness in our Bideford Town.
The first episode entitled 'No Place to Call Home' follows Kaye, a rough sleeper outreach worker, as well as 24-year-old Harry, who lives with eight people in supported accomodation.
The episode opens with Kaye speaking to an alcoholic woman with mental health problems who has been found sleeping in a graveyard.
Kaye tells the programme that North Devon has one of the highest rates of youth homelessness in the UK.

Torridge is dispersed over … Read more
