After seeing Ross Kemps documentary about poverty and homeless in the UK, I'm wondering, how do they end up like that?

Is it due to bad backgrounds/personal lives, addictions and lack of qualifications, things like that ?

It's usually due to a mixture of issues I think. They may have problems with things like drugs, lack of education, which may lead to crime, etc.

Some are normal people who lose their jobs and don't have friends or family to fall back on.

Often it's the other way around. People turn to drink and drugs to cope with being on the streets.

You can't end up on the streets in this country unless you refuse social support like council houses and benefits.

If you refuse this support, you may have mental health issues and end up on the streets

Schizophrenics who become alcoholics. Also when I lived in cambridge the homeless were drug dealers with places to live.

The waiting list for council housing is huge. Especially if you're single and have no children.

mental illness, family breakdown, divorce, funning away from home, business collapse/lose job, addiction. I doubt any of them planned to be homeless, but soemtimes life happens.

The ignorance displayed by this thread shows just how privileged (doesn't that word make you shudder?) most TSRians and their families are.

I think you'd be surprised at how many are thrown out by their families for religious differences, homophobia, racism etc.

What surpises me is why dont people just google it and see why this happens? Finding out and informing yoursel;f is much better than spouting ill informed tosh.
