Community nurses must engage with homelessness
The experience of homelessness raises a person’s risk for a number of communicable diseases, long-term conditions, mental health issues and substance use. The trauma caused by fleeing from war and persecution and leaving the security of your home also has a profound impact on mental and physical health. Health outcomes for people from the Gypsy, Traveller and Roma communities are among the poorest of any group, and sex workers have among the highest rates of drug addiction.
