A report, produced in association with Thames Reach Bondway, Alone in London and St Basil's, which examines the nature and extent of social networks of homeless people. It recommends that they should be helped to establish and keep social networks, as well as re-establishing contact and relationships with family members. The report suggests that family mediation, befriending, mentoring and person-centred counselling services should all be utilised in helping people to this end.
