Homeless need more rural shelters
MORE emergency shelters are needed to cope with the rise of youth homeless in rural areas, claims a report by the charity Centrepoint and the Countryside Agency.
The report says many youngsters are struggling to cope with rural isolation and poor job prospects.
A team of officials has been set up to look at the problems of young people in countryside communities.
