Justlife on BBC Radio Manchester

Last week, Matt Lloyd, Justlife project worker and Justlife client Chris were interviewed for a radio feature on begging in Manchester.

BBC Radio Manchester covered a news story about begging in the city and a new proposal to make begging illegal with the forced removal of all people begging.   Matt and Chris commented on the difficulties that people face and the reasons why people turn to begging, highlighting the importance of addressing root issues and not just moving the problem on.

Chris had the opportunity to give his story and how Justlife has helped him (click here to read), and Matt took time to explain the purpose of Justlife and how we work with vulnerable people in Manchester.
