Homelessness Myths and Memories


The Council to Homeless Persons have released a series of short animations called Homelessness Myths and Memories, which tell the stories of various people's experiences of homelessness:

One of the recurring themes that became apparent whilst researching Equal service is the need to break down the pre-conceived views that business owners, operators and the general public have about homeless people and about why they are experiencing homelessness. Many participants in the project to date have expressed the belief that if the wider community could understand how easy it is to be at risk of homelessness, they may be more willing to see themselves as part of the solution to solving homelessness issues.
You can have a look at the animations here.

Dear Chris,

I just saw Darren's two videos (I haven't seen all the animations yet) and I felt compelled to write to you about it. Thank you so much for the information! I very much appreciate knowing about this stuff and I am planning on attending that week in September at Credo :-)

I hope you're having a good week!

Warm Wishes,
from,
