Crisis Reverse Graffiti 04

Most homeless people have moved on but their problems haven't gone away!


At Crisis, the national charity for homeless people, we are using 'reverse garffiti' to campiagn on behalf of Britain's homeless.


Instead of using paint, we use water to clean the dirt from walls so, unlike trditional graffiti, it doesn't damage property.


There are 15 of these reverse graffiti pieces around East London.


This one is on Abbey Road.


There may be less rough sleepers than there were ten years ago but Crisis estimate there are 400,000 'hidden' homeless people leading isolated in hostels, run down B&Bs, squats or sleeping on friend's floors. They may have a roof over their head, but their problems haven't gone away.
