Action Homeless: East Midlands charities given grants for short-term help

Homeless charities in the East Midlands are being given government grants to help fund short-term help.

Leicester-based charity Action Homeless and Derby's Riverside charity are being given £200,000 each, while Nottingham's Framework is to be given nearly £124,000.

East Midlands Today's Simon Ward went to Leicester to speak to a man who is being supported by Action Homeless.
