Seeing and knowing people as people is so needed if we are to work alongside each other and right the wrongs in the system. Hoping the book will help me do that. Thank you and Goodd Luck

Telling the stories of real people helps us cut through our judgement and connect to the fact that this could be me, sitting here, with nothing and no one. Thanks for doing this Robert. Milee - Trustee at Emmaus Norfolk And Waveney - a place to belong, a bed and the reason to get out of it.

Looking forward to seeing this in print - suspect we could all benefit from a bit of real insight into homelessness.

Hi Robert Very much look forward to reading Any Spare Change, and attending the launch event. I'm also really interested in supporting & assisting inequality, rough sleeping, and hope to do more to help in the future. Look forward to the potential to speak with you. Best wishes Graham
