Those you think go one way, they don't, and the people you think go the other way, they don't!

The city has grown incredibly well and rapidly, it's such a vibrant city, but it seems we have left a lot of people behind on that journey. It's just whether there's a way to impact this, to turn it around. "Homelessness is a difficult issue to tackle. The first thing you always think about is: 'Should I go and give money to someone, would that make his life better?' It's a lot more complex than this. "So it's all about finding the right partners, and we were lucky because to be fair to him, Mayor Andy Burnham has been very committed to solving the issue of homelessness.
