digital:works have secured a commission to work with the Council and young people from Weymouth on a short film about being homeless.
This film will attempt to try and reduce the number of young people leaving home, by having young people who have experienced homelessness talk about the realities of being homeless and the options available. And the Council wish to explain to young people throughout the borough the practical help they can offer in family mediation and in securing accommodation.
Janice Munday, Young Persons Housing Advisor, talks about how she can mediate with families and liaise with other agencies in an attempt to resolve the issues which lead to the young person becoming homeless. She strongly advises young people to come forward early so that she can offer mediation in an attempt to resolve issues before they lead to leaving the family home or they are evicted.
