An assembly can be a great way of introducing your school to the issue of homelessness and the work that Framework does to tackle it in your community.
Introduce the idea of homelessness through the story of Roofus.

Start to challenge common stereotypes - Homelessness happens to ordinary people and we can't predict who will be affected by it.
We have expert, front-line members of staff available to talk to your shool and address some of the misconceptions that exist about homelessness.
An assembly would be a great time to invite Roofus himself as well as one of our members of staff to speak to you and your school about homelessness and the work that Framework does to tackle it in your local area. Together, they can provide answers to young people's questions with a big smile.
