According to the National Audit Office (NAO), for the past six years the number of homeless people in England has increased by 60%. This is connected with the growth of rent payment and reforms in the sphere of social security. The NAO also reported that in the last six years, the number of homeless people in England has doubled. About 4 thousand people are forced to spend the night on the street.
Since homelessness is an actual problem in the capital, many Londoners want to help those who live on the streets. Just for such kind people, the Next Meal application was created. Using GPS, it shows where homeless people can get shelter and have lunch at the moment. Every Londoner with a smartphone can help people without a roof over their heads, telling them the addresses of a charity.
