Not Home - A novella by Sarah Butler

our-work / publications

Life in unsupported temporary accommodation is a world that most people never see, hear of or understand. Sarah worked with our support workers and service users to learn the intricacies and complexities of the lives of people living in Manchester's temporary accommodation. The result is a compelling and insightful story that brings the perspectives of an under-represented community to light.

"Not Home is a piece of fiction. It isn’t about any particular person or place, but it is rooted in the real lives of people living in Manchester today – a hidden homeless population who deserve much much better. The book is dedicated to the nine Manchester B&B residents using Justlife’s services who died over the course of the project."
