You saw life
Through an alcoholic haze
Bag in hand
Talked in riddles
Slept by the bins
Ten year asbo man
Keep movin’ on
Through our doors
You found a home
A light in your eyes
Of hope within
Enjoy those hymns

Gritty Productions pilot theatre project featuring pro actors alongside those with experience of homelessness – Barry plays his part
Gritty Productions in association with Wales National Theatre are running a pilot street theatre project a Zac’s Place this week.
Stories from the street community, working with actors devising material for a presentation this Friday – small ideas that we hope will develop into a bigger platform. Wonderful to see the creativity out of chaos.
This Monday 10 Feb see the first of three more remarkable documentary programmes featuring the stories from some of those on the streets of Swansea.
It’s gritty and deeply moving, depicting some beautiful moments of hope amid a dark back drop of deeply traumatic lives struggling to get through each day.
In the back ground, Zac’s Place features along with the work of other organisations: The Wallich, Caer Las, Cyrenians, The Big Issue and medical professionals demonstrating where we fit and how we function together.
Tune in 10.35 BBC 1 Wales, Mon 10 Feb and BBC iPlayer and get a window on some of what makes us who we are and do what do.
Also on Satellite:
Freesat Channel 971 (Rest of UK)
Sky Channel 952 (Rest of UK)
Cable: Virgin Media Channel 862 (Rest of UK)

Many of our friends have complex problems and they are served best by a good team effort of dedicated volunteers and skilled professionals from across several agencies – which included the Big Issue, The Wallich, SANDS, nursing and mental health team staff from Cyrenians St Matthews, dental and podiatry experts and student nurses. Here’s some of the wonderful crew …
