Housing Technology, recognised for its 15+ years of innovative contributions to the UK housing sector, is thrilled to announce its collaboration with the impactful documentary Someone’s Daughter, Someone’s Son, screening in cinemas across the country this month.

As a pioneering organisation supporting and financing this production, Housing Technology aligns its mission with the film’s aim to cast a light on the issue of homelessness in the UK.

Directed by esteemed filmmaker Lorna Tucker, a filmmaker with a personal connection to the story, the documentary is poised to stir the nation’s conscience.

George Grant, the CEO and founder of Housing Technology, emphasised the film’s potential to drive change.

He said: “This documentary is not just a film – it’s a movement. Our early support of Someone’s Daughter, Someone’s Son signifies our deep commitment to addressing the issue of homelessness.”

John Bird, co-founder of Big Issue, has praised the documentary as a powerful tool in the fight against homelessness, which shares the magazine’s mission to foster impactful change.

The film features inspiring stories of individuals who have emerged from homelessness to become part of the solution. It’s hoped that it will resonate with audiences, sparking dialogue and action.

As the first organisation to back this remarkable project, Housing Technology continues to lead by example, promoting innovative and compassionate solutions in the UK housing sector and beyond.
