Hillfields’ Homeless

How can I get into the community?

I need to think of more than one approach to do this. Hillfields is indeed a dangerous place so approaching people on the street or wondering round with a camera is going to be threatening. However,  because of the area there are organisations such as for the homeless. I am going to speak to the Coventry Day Care for the Homeless on Bird Street to find out more information of the organisation and see if this is a window of opportunity.

Just finding this article in the Coventry Telegraph, posted yesterday, suggests that the debate over Hillfields as a ‘dumping ground’ when it comes to a new proposal for a hostel. Homelessness is a current discussion; locals against the increased number of homeless in the area, yet do they consider the individuals and their stories. Perhaps this is my route in. Perhaps not.
