The Pavement

The Pavement is a magazine and website for homeless people committed to publishing independent advice as well as hard-hitting and entertaining reportage. They aim to provide and publicise appropriate information that is objective, timely and relevant on a range of advisory and practical services available to homeless people, as well as news on the issues impacting the homeless and dispossessed from across the UK. Their ultimate goal is to help reduce short-term hardship amongst their readers and longer term to provide them with information to enable them to guide their own futures.

Their journalists cover the news from the streets or news affecting the streets, and often deal with topics ignored by the mainstream press. Alongside this, other professionals provide features on health, foot care, legal advice and life in hostels, with the back pages given over to The List, a regularly updated directory of homeless services.
