The Barnet Group’s youth arm Voicebox has teamed up with Exposure to produce a short film tackling youth homelessness.
Exposure are an award-winning young people’s charity who recently had major short film success about police stop and search in Haringey – and who are now turning their talents to produce a film about youth homelessness in Barnet.
“We're delighted to be working with Exposure as we value their philosophy of empowering young people to help inform their peers,” said Charlie Kanareck, Early Intervention and Prevention Manager, The Barnet Group.
Exposure will be working with young people from the Stonegrove Estates Youth Project in Edgware, with support from local youth workers. The film is scheduled for completion in August and will be used as an education resource in local schools, youth clubs and a variety of youth settings.
“Our film will be developed with the active participation of young people in Barnet, reflecting their personal experiences and unique perspective,” said Exposure’s Flo Codjoe, who will be overseeing the project.
The film will explore different situations that young people may find themselves in, after having experienced difficulties at home. The film will signpost young people to the advice, support and mediation services available they need to help keep them safe.
