HLHomeless Link's election podcast, detailing how the 4 ‘major parties’ will deal with issues relating to housing & homelessness if they are invited to form a new government, was the most viewed UK non-profit channel on Wednesday 28 April.  The podcasts were also the 36th most viewed global non-profit channel. 
Homeless Link asked its 500 member agencies and their service users to come up with the 3 questions they would most like to ask the homelessness & housing spokespeople for the 4 ‘main parties’. 

It collated the responses and submitted the questions to the parties.  Labour and Conservative spokespeople agreed to be recorded, while the Liberal Democrats and Green Party provided a written response.
