Homelessness is defined by the United Nations as ‘a condition where a person or household lacks habitable space with security of tenure, rights and ability to enjoy social relations, including safety’. It manifests in different ways, from ‘sleeping rough’, that is to say ‘eating, sleeping, and staying in public spaces’; to living in precarious and unstable housing conditions, such as temporary shelters, boarding houses and ‘couch surfing’; and to living in inappropriate housing that is overcrowded or lacking in basic facilities.
