For this VoteTopic, young people discussed homelessness by considering the support needed to tackle the issue. They thought more closely about where this support should be coming from and those aged 7 and above voted on the question, "Is it everyone's responsibility to end homelessness?" Meanwhile, voters aged 5-7 voted on the question, "Is more help needed for people who are homeless?"
"Yes,I think it is everyone's job to end homelessness because the people who are homeless might not have enough money to be able to get a job or find themselves a home."
"It's the same as climate change - everyday people aren't going to be able to do a huge amount to make a difference. It's large companies and the Government that are going to have the biggest impact!"
"We identified that the government has a major responsibility, but many of us thought that we could *all* do something to help, even if only something small."
