"For people in very precarious housing – homeless people, refugees, asylum seekers – the symbolic features of the home may actually be more pronounced when compared to the experiences of many people who are happily housed. […] we know from research with homeless people that even if they are living on the street, some of the things they take around with them, and also their ideas of what a home constitutes, are very important psychically. So, in a way the significance of the home can be more pronounced for people who haven’t got a home, or whose relationship with the home is very precarious".
