What’s it like for young people living in temporary Housing? / Children’s Rights Alliance for England
Thousands of children without permanent homes are growing up in B&Bs, spending months and sometimes years there. As such, the Children’s Rights Alliance for England (CRAE), wanted to us to find out and communicate: what’s life like for young people experiencing this kind of temporary housing?
We worked with several young people who had lived in temporary housing, to understand what life had been like for them, and come up with a respectful and effective way to communicate their experiences.
To protect the young people’s privacy, no faces are shown. But the voices you hear are not performed, they’re from authentic interviews with the participants, who also helped out on set during filming as part of a ‘co-production’ process.
For maximum traction, we titled the video ‘Thousand of British Children Live Like This’, and the film was shown to MPs at the House of Commons.
