Why should I listen?
Ask us Anything is an open and honest podcast about youth homelessness, recorded and produced by young people that have experienced hostel living and living on the streets. In the podcast we’re going to share some real life stories from how we became homeless to how we shave (do we really use a chainsaw??).
We want to change people’s opinions, to tell people what it’s really like and show that we really are good people.
We’re also havin’ a giraffe and hope the listener will too!
What will I get from it?
Ask us Anything gives you, the listener, the opportunity to ask us anything you like, and we really do mean anything from homelessness to giraffes to anything in between.
We hope that by doing this we can share some really important information about what to do if you’re homeless, show people that are homeless that they’re not alone and have A LOT of fun along the way.

This podcast has been created by young people who have used the services of Amethyst SARC (Sexual Assault Referral Centre).
In their own words they have talked about finding the courage to speak out about sexual violence, coming to the SARC, talking to the police, going through the court process, the support they have had and how they have coped.
We would like to thank all the amazing young people who shared their stories and hope that this will enable others to break their silence and share your strength.
The project has been produced with help from PACT, Crimebeat, CGI and the South Caernarfonshire Soroptimists.
