THE CHILD POVERTY AND HOMELESS PROJECT
Michael is currently working with Wilderness Productions to produce this documentary about child poverty and homelessness in East London.
In a recent Save the Children report, three of the top ten worst boroughs for severe child poverty in the UK were in east London. In Newham alone, over 6,000 children and young people live in temporary accomodation.
Think Big youth filmed for the Wilderness trailer
Drawing on Michael’s passion, experience and contacts working with children in temporary accomodation in East London, the Wilderness team have now shot a brief trailer for the film – with thanks to the Think Big team and young people and Jude Simmons from Community Links.
The Big Issue founder John Bird and actor and Big Issue patron Simon Callow are also to be involved.
The trailer is available to broadcasters and funders interested in supporting the project upon request.
