    How much and how often? Or do you just walk around them and pretend they don't exist.

    I use to, but not as much anymore (due to too many frauds/scammers/junkies). If I have food on me, then I usually give that away. I tend to carry stuff like snack bars.

    I remember about a year ago when I was coming back from university and arrived at the bus station which had so many people who were homeless just loitering about

    And I ended up emptying my wallet cause I thought it wouldn’t hurt to spare a few bucks

    Big mistake, never doing it again

    Only to the elderly and disabled. Not so much the kids and grown-ups that're seemingly able to get some work simply because I'm in the impression that giving them money to get by would become a habit and they'd rely on charity to again and again and again.

    Why did you feel it was a big mistake? Care to elaborate? :)

    I personally see it as @savior2005 stated above

    I usually only carry enough cash to pay for a bus trip in case my bus card runs out. And I also often give money to my mom, who doesn't have a job (in the cases when my dad's money isn't enough cause his work isn't very stable).

    Also it's a known fact that a lot of beggars here are frauds. We do have shelters for actual homeless people, after all (even if these don't have good living conditions, people tend to stay there instead of standing in the streets).

    If I have spare money, yes. Just this summer while I was in Ireland, a woman and her young daughter (they both sound a little more Eastern European) were begging for some money to afford for a hostel that's about to expire. Gave them whatever spare changes I had, but the woman was like "I can't afford a hostel with this", and I left saying "sorry".
