Bilal's First Day Out: Episode 5

A Place To Lay My Head

Join former prisoner Bilal as he walks out of gates of HMP Brixton and tries to find somewhere to live. His support worker Sarah is along for the ride as well, and she’s made it her mission to start him off on the straight.

After a long day, Bilal's on his way to a housing meeting. This is make or break stuff.

If this doesn’t go well, he’s probably going to be homeless again.
