An exhibition of photography by young homeless adults was held in Ripley.

Futures Homescape encouraged residents in the temporary hostel-type accommodation to take a short photography course and showcased the results at their Ripley headquarters. Daniel Askew, a 19 year-old former resident who took part, said: “Hopefully people can now get a better understanding of how young homeless people live by seeing the photos. The project has benefits for everyone involved!”
