Maureen’s father is a resident at St Mauritius House, a sheltered housing scheme for the elderly in Lewisham South East London, which caters for the needs of African-Caribbean, Asian and ethnic minority elders. The housing scheme is also managed by Hyde Housing.
Over the last few months I have noticed how distressed my father and the other residents have become due to their current living conditions.
I asked my son Omari who is a film maker to document some of the issues that currently exist within this housing scheme.
I am not very good with social media but I felt compelled to act and wanted to give this vulnerable group of elderly residents a voice.
Please help me and share this video so that together we can be agents for change.
Hyde Housing is an absolute disgrace. I hope this video goes viral and forces them to fix these issues.
