Graph Results LO2

  1. 1. Summery of Research On Homelessness Hannah Sewell
  2. 2. This was the first question that I asked to my peers. I can already see that the majority of people that answered my questionnaire were in the correct target audience bracket. For example SASH’s work involves young people from 16-24. 86% that answered my questionnaire are 16-19 years old which means that I know my answers will be accurate. It also shows that 18% that answer were 20-24 years which is also important for my research. It is known that ¾ of the people that SASH works with are ages from 16-17 years. The lowest percentage shown was 4% which was over 25, this is good as we don’t need information for that age group.
  3. 3. This graph shows me just how much people were female and male. This is important because it will help through the questionnaire to see what males think of homelessness and what females think of it. If they both have very different opinions then I can see which one will help towards my poster. By also looking at it I could try to merge both ideas together so that it connects with both genders, this would make the poster more successful to the public.
  4. 4. When looking at this I found that 65% of my audience were from North Yorkshire, this is good because for areas like the North East, there is a rise in unemployment and cuts etc. It would be good to get an opinion on what they think of homelessness and what ideas they would have on how to improve it. It’s a negative that East Riding only has 10% because I don’t really know about that area and what SASH does to help them. Hopefully I can see there results and see what they think overall. It is good that York has 35% because that’s where SASH is based. It will be good to compare each region to see how much homelessness is a problem in there area.
  5. 5. This graph says a lot. The fact that 83% said that they would donate means that they care about a homeless charity and also the fact that they have spare money to do so. The age group that I asked for this questionnaire were mostly the age of 16-19, at these ages it’s hard to get a job and also you might have fees to pay for further education. This probably shows that 22% wouldn’t donate money at this time because they don’t have the spare money to do so. If more people are willing to donate the money it means when giving out posters they will be interested in the charity and cause.
  6. 6. From reading the answers from this graph I have found that 9 of the answers were saying how there can be many factors to being homeless and you can’t point out whether it is a choice or not. Whilst 7 people thought that it wasn’t your choice to be homeless, they thought that you could mostly be kicked out without knowing you were going to etc. Finally only 4 people thought homelessness was a choice which means they are using a stereotype against it like e.g. they are drug addicts etc or that they’ve not experienced it themselves. For the answer mostly to be that they aren’t sure shows that they don’t know much about what happens to homeless people and that they should be provided more with information in posters etc.
  7. 7. This question has a very dominant answer this is because people feel that if they have the opportunity to look have there friend then they would. 18 people said they were be willing to help a friend because they know them and they have probably gone through a lot together. Whilst 2 said they wouldn’t be sure because it depends if they can help them with it or it is better for an organization to help them. From looking at the answers it turns out that everyone would help a friend, no one rejected there idea. This is good for my research because it shows that people need to know that a charity like SASH does a background check on all the young people so that they are okay and safe. They need to know that homeless people aren’t smelly and all on drugs.
  8. 8. This is a positive way of showing results as SASH are in demand for new volunteers, it is good they 65% of people believe that they could volunteer to help charities such as SASH. The more volunteers they have then the more homeless people they can help, volunteers give young people the opportunity to live with them so that they are safe and not in danger. SASH has been going for 20 years so it’s important that volunteers know that it’s a good charity that hasn’t had a problem with homeless people living with volunteers. It must be said that over a quarter of people wouldn’t volunteer because of the fact that you bring a homeless person into your home, it would be good to get there attention to through my posters.
  9. 9. This graph tells people that SASH definitely needs more volunteers and branding. The fact that they base over North Yorkshire, York and East Riding means that much more people should know about this charity. The fact that SASH has had such a demand on people that were homeless last year means that more people should know about it due to family and friends not having a place to go. A staggering 82% haven't heard of this charity, this is made me think about the location that I can put my posters so more people can see them and that they can be more obvious to the public. The fact that these people are mostly 16-19 means that they probably wouldn’t have to reason to donate to a charity or even look them up.
  10. 10. This question has shown me that people think that there isn’t enough awareness on homelessness, it’s not a big thing that’s on the news most of the time. 8 people thought that there wasn’t enough charities to help people that are homeless, instead they have to surf between homes. Sometimes they’ll go to a friends and then a grandparents, it’s not stable or suitable for anyone. The fact that SASH alone looks after 300 each year and there is a growing demand means there needs to be more volunteering charities that are willing to help. Whilst 4 people thought that there was enough charities to help others. 5 people didn’t know much at all about charities to comment on that factor. This means overall that SASH would have to grow as a charity to help all the homeless youth or more charities open up.
  11. 11. Most of the answers came to helping a homeless person on the street. One answer said that they ‘should get respect’ and another said that ‘they shouldn’t live like that no one should’. This shows that people do care about the homeless and they don’t like seeing them on the street. Some offered to give them food. 9 People said they would help. 6 people said they weren’t sure whether they should help the homeless because of there looks, background and if they were drunk. This is because people that are 16-24 only see older adults on the street that really have no place to go. The younger people that are homeless wouldn’t be like this, they look normal and like everyone else. They used another stereotype over homeless people which isn’t good at all. Whilst 4 people said they definitely wouldn’t help a homeless person. One person said that people sit on the ground pretending to be homeless to get money so they don’t trust homeless people. They have to realise that children would feel more scared being on the street as they are very vulnerable.
