The Brief

Janette’s story is one of four films made by Pearl Films as an awareness-raising campaign for the charity.  Janette’s story is a powerful reminder that homelessness takes many forms and affects people from a wider range of backgrounds than we generally expect.  The film celebrates the benefit of receiving support during tough times and the crucial role charities play in giving people a route out of hardship.
