Homeless in Brighton


“We are all

one step away from being homeless”

The quote that reminds us, it could happen to anyone! Sussex Homeless Support based in Brighton is headed by Jim Deans and this documentary balances a probe into the the issues faced by the organisation and the people they help. Jim and the team travel round local shops and supermarkets collecting food waste and provisions. Jim keenly mentions the local support the organisation receives and the public compassion to help. Volunteers cook and serve hot food and drinks at the Street Kitchen. In five years the number of people in need of food had risen from 20 to 150! For those needing a change of clothes - donated clean items are regularly provided. Tents and bedding are distributed on the streets often late into the night for those in need. Anything left goes to help the wider community in Calais. The night bus service provides a space for safety and sleep. Volunteers speak fondly of tucking them in at night. “All they want is mothering” this heart-warming account reminds us that whoever we are, we all need love. Following a night’s sleep and breakfast many get up and go to work
