DAY 1: All this week on TowerFm we’re looking at the bigger picture of homelessness, challenging the stereotypes and exposing the truth. Today we hear from Jenna who lost everything through depression at just 21.



DAY 2: We hear from an ex-traffic warden who now lives under a bridge and find out whether official figures reflect reality.



DAY 3: Today we are challenging stereotypes. We hear from a local childrens' home and the problems sanctions can cause as well as health issues among the homeless community.



DAY 4: Today we hear from professionals who say mental health among the homeless population is a huge problem with ex-servicemen also at risk.



DAY 5: On our final day we look at what we've learnt during our investigation and find out what people are doing to try and help the situation.
