Glynn sells The Big Issue in Bath. He's sleeping rough right now but hopes to get a roof over his head soon. His customers keep him going, he says. "I lost my way, completely. I saw this job as a chance at a fresh start. I’m determined to take it."

Shovels are now in the ground on the construction of a pioneering new 1.5 acre village in Edinburgh. The project, led by @social_bite, will consist of 10 two-bedroom homes – and the properties will help those living in homeless hostels, shelters and B&Bs.
