A Roof Over My Head
Behind the beautiful Georgian facade of Bath and the stunning surrounds of Bath and North East Somerset, homelessness – or the threat of it – is a problem facing a growing number of people. There are over 4,000 on social housing waiting lists in the region and house prices are 14 times average earnings. The issues go far deeper than the number of street homeless.
This film, funded by St John’s Foundation and created by Meaningful Films, shows the realities of homelessness and the life-changing work that is being done by local organisations to help. We witness first-hand the difference that support staff and volunteers make to those struggling to keep a roof over their head.
