Prince William and The Royal Foundation’s Homewards programme, a five-year programme which aims to demonstrate that homelessness can be ended, will feature in an exclusive two-part ITV documentary series.

Prince William: We Can End Homelessness [w/t], will give an exclusive, behind the scenes look at the first year of the Homewards programme.  It will follow Prince William as he launches Homewards across the country, as well as the journeys of those currently facing homelessness or who have lived experience of the issue. The documentary will also feature well-known advocates of the programme, alongside those leading individual projects across the UK.

The Royal Foundation has described Homewards as “a five-year programme that aims to demonstrate that it’s possible to end homelessness by working with six locations across the UK to put collaboration at the heart of the response”.

The 2 x 60 series is commissioned for ITV by Jo Clinton-Davis, ITV Controller of Factual and Sue Murphy, Head of Factual Entertainment.  It is produced by Mindhouse and directed by BAFTA award-winning Director Leo Burley and Executive Produced by Arron Fellows. It will be shown on ITV1 and ITVX this autumn.

“We know that television has the power to change hearts and minds.  Homelessness can seem like it is hard to prevent but by sharing the realities of people’s experiences and those who are coming together to support them, we can inspire action. This two-part documentary will help raise vital awareness and demonstrate that, by working together, it is possible to end homelessness.”

-Amanda Berry OBE, Chief Executive Officer, The Royal Foundation.
