Also, just the ability to have a shower and groom yourself have a massive impact on both public and professional judgment. Washing your hair, clothes, and having a good rest before going to a job interview – even for low-level jobs – will immensely improve one’s ability to actually land that job. Homeless people aren’t all drug addicts with no life prospects. Many are victims of circumstance beyond their control. It’s a vicious cycle that keeps homeless people homeless. It’s shit now because absolutely nobody is hiring. This is absolutely a good step in the right direction. But we can do more as a society to help those that need it – especially when they could contribute to society if given the chance.

People who work with London’s homeless would be very familiar with how they’ve been neglected without any real change for a long time. The comments asking ‘then what?’ are much more useful than the ones acting like the only proper response to the news is posting the ‘[Everybody liked that]’ meme and anything other than that is some obscene ingratitude. Which ones do you think the charity paying for this would appreciate more.
