“Homeless … but not helpless”

A Place Like This! a powerful  90 second trailer “about a place where homeless never means helpless…”

The St Vincent de Paul Society has teamed up with the prominent Australian agency George Patterson Y&R Sydney to produce a documentary offering a unique insight into homelessness. A Place Like This, made by former Matthew Talbot Homeless Services client Roy Faamatala, chronicles the trials and tribulations of six people – Roy, Krystal, Keith, Jon, Maria and Gabriel – all experiencing homelessness.

“This film actually tells the story of the many thousands of people who have nowhere to call home. It is their voice and shows that homelessness doesn’t discriminate. In the wrong set of circumstances it can be a scary reality for anyone at any time,” said Roy.
