This project was initiated by Colab's Exeter Homeless Partnership to try and understand how Covid-19 has impacted those with lived experience of homelessness.
In order to gather ideas and lived experiences, myself CoLab staff and Richard Todd set up pop-up spaces on eight occasions and across three locations where we chatted to people with lived experience. We recorded participant experiences and ideas about homelessness and Covid-19 on postcards that were posted into 'postboxes' addressed to a range if topics; ‘services’, ‘community’, ‘the future’ and ‘how I feel’.
These postcards where then complied into the below book, which has been used to start conversations about homelessness and Covid-19 across a range of services.
This e-book only goes up to page 26. If you would like the full version, please request one.
