More than two thousand children across the south-west will be homeless this Christmas.

Shelter says many are being moved around temporary accommodation and even taken out of school.

Redruth Foyer helps put a roof over youngsters' heads.

One teenager who has been helped by the project said, "It's really hard because you don't have much support from your family because you have to travel to see them. All I have it my friends and also my key workers. Use farms that aren't being used and build houses - let people live there."

Nicola Hughes from Shelter said, "Every two minutes someone in Britain faces losing their home. Children who are living in temporary accommodation - we know that is having a really devastating impact on their lives over the long term. We need as much help and support for families as possible."
