Warren’s Story

I was commissioned by Humankind in Leeds to create a short documentary about Warren, a beneficiary of their West Yorkshire – Finding Independence Project (WY-FI).

West Yorkshire – Finding Independence (WY-FI) supports people experiencing entrenched, multiple needs in at least three of the following HARM areas:

  • Homelessness
  • Addiction to drugs and/or alcohol
  • Reoffending
  • Mental ill-health

Over the course of the project, over 800 people have benefitted. Warren’s willingness to share the story of his own journey through addiction, homelessness and illness is a mark of his generosity and his hope that, in telling his own story, he would be of help to other people with similar experiences and needs.
