Beth Knowles, the current Mayoral Lead for Homelessness and Rough Sleeping at Greater Manchester Mayor’s Office, is helping North West England address its homelessness crisis by merging the arts community with both public and private sectors. In her prior role as a Manchester City Councillor, Knowles noticed that “rough sleeping was increasing dramatically in my ward, and no one was concentrating on it. As far as I was concerned, they were as much my residents as anyone who was housed.”
