We have been contacted by KEO Films about a four part documentary that will look at the reality of financial hardship in the UK.

The documentary will follow a range of people through the course of looking for and receiving help, and it is due to be broadcast on BBC 2 in the Summer of 2018.

It will aim to tell the stories of some of the many families that are just about managing, or living in poverty, despite being in work. This series aims to give people in these situations a voice. It will explore what it is like to live on a low income in the UK – and the difficult choices this often leads to.

It will build on KEO Films’ long history of making powerful, touching and sensitively produced films about social issues. These include ‘The Last Miners’ (about the people working in Britain’s last deep coal mine), ‘Welcome to Lagos’ and ‘Welcome to Rio’ (exploring poverty in both cities), and ‘The Big C & Me’ (documenting the lives of those going through cancer treatments).

Would you like to speak to KEO Films about their documentary?

The team at KEO Films would like to speak to individuals and families who are struggling to make ends meet. All conversations would be confidential and initially over the phone and there is no requirement to be filmed at any stage if you contact them.

If you would like to speak to KEO Films, get in contact with Una Farrell, Communications Manager at Turn2us, at una.farrell@turn2us.org.uk or on 020 8834 9259. She will tell you more about the documentary and will put you in contact with KEO Films.
