Prince William’s Homewards program has announced a new exhibition and a two-part documentary series, ‘Prince William: We Can End Homelessness’, which will give a behind-the-scenes look at the first year of the Homewards program.

The exhibition is in collaboration with the Saatchi Gallery and the Eleven Eleven
Foundation. The exhibition called “Homelessness: Reframed” will have art which brings to life the complexity of homelessness.

Amanda Berry OBE, Chief Executive Officer, The Royal Foundation said, “People need to believe in change for it to happen. Homelessness can feel like it is hard to prevent, but by building understanding of the realities of how it impacts so many we can learn what needs to be done to end it. The exhibition underlines Homewards and The Royal Foundation’s dedication to challenging the long-held perceptions around homelessness. By giving a platform to those with lived experience, we hope to start to shift the narrative and demonstrate that homelessness is not an inevitable part of society. Sincere thanks to our partners, Saatchi Gallery and Eleven Eleven Foundation, for their invaluable support.”

‘Homelessness: Reframed’ will open at Saatchi Gallery on Wednesday, August 7th, and run for six weeks until Friday, September 20th.

The documentary will be shown on ITV1 and ITVX this autumn

Director Leo Burley said, “Over the past year, we have spent time following Prince William and The Royal Foundation through the first year of the Homewards programme.  We’ve heard some incredibly moving stories from people across the country facing homelessness. From street homelessness in Newport to families living in temporary accommodation in Sheffield and youth homelessness in Aberdeen, the documentary paints a picture of homelessness across the UK today, working with many people who never expected to experience life without a place to call home. Everyone we’ve filmed with has welcomed the spotlight that Prince William and Homewards are placing on the UK’s homelessness crisis.”
