So I snapped back, fighting for recovery, It’s never too late for a new trajectory, To a new way of living, a new lease of life; I know it isn’t easy, but I have to try.
Trafford Housing Trust’s ‘CleanStart’ programme’ aims to give ex-convicts, and ex-military a clean start by giving them a job in house removal, landscaping and cleaning within the housing association and beyond. This helps create a sense purpose and hope for these individuals where they might otherwise struggle or worse, re-offend. We made a series of films to celebrate and demonstrate the work that Cleanstart has done since their inception to present day.
The poetic short film ‘Another Chance’ follows the journey of one individual who has hit rock bottom and can’t seem to find a way out. With the help and support of Cleanstart, he is given that final chance, which he is more than ready to fight for.
‘CleanStart Why Not’ brings to life to achievements that Cleanstart has had, in not only helping ex-offenders and military, but how it also has helped and impacted local business who have used the service.
