‘Kieran Duggan is only 21 but he is ages old in hardship. He has been homeless from the age of nine and his only possessions are the clothes he is wearing. He has epilepsy and asthma. He has already been hospitalised with hypothermia four times. Yet he has no sleeping bag to keep out the cold, only the clothes he is wearing.
“Being on the streets so young I was really vulnerable,” he says. “I’ve been jumped on and attacked, I’ve had my phone stolen, I’ve even been urinated on.
“Most nights I don’t even try to sleep, I just walk and walk. Sometimes I’ll sit on a bench and fall asleep until a copper comes and shines a torch on me and moves me on. That happens all the time.”‘
