My neighbours moved out a few weeks ago. Today there was someone doing some maintenance on the property as the company they part exchanged with are trying to let it. They found the son (17) sleeping rough in the shed at the bottom of the garden. Wish I'd been there when he was found. Always found him a very considerate lad (though know, like all teenagers he was a bit dozy and not very good with his chores! but we always got on very well - he was very artistic - bit of a goth but then we can't all have taste :)). Anyway, the maintenance man sent him packing so not sure I'll see him again - and hadn't seen him before or realised he was sleeping rough or I would have done something about it. Feel a lot concerned for him.
Relationship with his mother had been very strained and strange since his sister was born a few years ago. The one good thing is that his step dad was ex army and had taught him a lot of survival skills but not good that someone that young has found themselves in that position. Hadn't realised that he hadn't moved with the rest of the family ... though guess he might have been staying with someone else whilst he did his A levels.
Know there is nothing I can do about it but feel saddened.
