A pioneering study has shown that people who suffer brain injuries may be more at risk of becoming homeless. It's the first of its kind in the country and was carried out in Leeds where almost half of those living on the streets said they had suffered such an injury.
The findings are being seen as an important breakthrough to raise awareness and improve support for people who may find themselves vulnerable after a head trauma.
Of those interviewed in Leeds, 90 per cent suffered their first injury before they became homeless. The average age at which it happened being just nineteen years old - with more than half going on to suffer at least more than one brain injury.
