Homelessness is a problem virtually every society suffers from. There are many things that cause people to become homeless, such as unemployment, relationship problems, and being evicted from ones domicile either by a landlord, friend or even a family member. However, with every cause there must be an effect. Some of the effects of one becoming homeless, besides the obvious change of lifestyle, are various health problems which often times may lead to death.
Many people find themselves in a predicament when they are living with a partner and the two decide to go their separate ways. Some people may not be able afford the cost of living on just their income alone, so when two people terminate a relationship where one depends on the other, both are often left homeless for a period of time.

In addition a homeless person’ life expectancy is approximately twenty years less than that of a person who is not homeless.
There are many causes and effects of homelessness and it continues to be a problem in virtually all societies known to man. Regardless of what the causes of someone becoming homeless are, all homeless people will eventually suffer from some or all of the effects of being homeless, rather it be malnutrition, mental illnesses, abuse, drug addictions, or even death.

In this section we looked at the importance of summarising
information in academic writing. Summarising is useful for
demonstrating that you have fully understood the text that you have
read or heard, for condensing notes and for researching essays and
assignments. Good summarising involves ascertaining what the main ideas
of the text/audio are, and being able to maintain these ideas in a

short sentences and to join short sentences together to form longer
