A new scheme called Greater Change lets homeless people crowdfund for concrete goals using a QR code and app. Is this the answer to giving in a cashless society?

We’ve all been there. A guy – almost invariably it is a guy – enters your train carriage and announces to anyone who will listen that he is down on his luck, needs a few quid to get a hostel for the night, wasn’t always like this, is trying to get back to some semblance of normality. But is he? Will he use the money for food and lodging, or will it go on drink and drugs – the next shot to get him through the darkness?
