The 'guerrilla' posters appeared on streets in Colne, Nelson, Rawtenstall, Bacup, Earby Barnoldswick, and Barrowford.

PAC managerClaire Bennett explained “This campaign is about raising awareness and getting these critical subjects onto everyone’s agenda and in everyone’s conversation.

"These issues affect hundreds of people in our local community every year, and therefore we need to ensure that as a whole community we tackle them together.

“Most people in the areas we serve won’t even realise the problem with youth homelessness, yet we’re providing accommodation for 33 young people at any one time. It’s about getting people to realise this is an issue happening right under their noses, this isn’t just a Manchester problem and it’s one that can affect anyone, regardless of age or background.”
