Just so, where would you go if you were homeless?
If you don't have a place to stay, your first stop should be the housing department of your local council, to make a homeless application. The council should provide you with somewhere to stay while it looks into your situation, and you should be able to move into this temporary accommodation immediately.
Regarding this, is living in your car considered homeless?
There are many reasons people who are homeless end up living in cars. Some people may have lost their home, but still have their car. Some people who experience homelessness prefer to sleep in their car rather than go to a shelter or spend the night on the streets. Shelters may turn people away if they're at capacity.
The new research found that the average homeless person has a life expectancy of 47, compared to 77 for the rest of the population: a startling difference of 30 years. The life expectancy for women was even lower, at just 43 years.
