The Prince of Wales launched his Homewards project in June 2023 – the new series will follow the future king as he launched his ambitious project and will uncover the behind-the-scenes of the first year of the program.

It will also feature well-known advocates of the project, as well as those leading individual projects across the UK.

The TV documentary is expected to air on ITV later this year.

The Royal Foundation, the Prince and Princess of Wales’ charity, has described Homewards as “a five-year program that aims to demonstrate that it’s possible to end homelessness by working with six locations across the UK to put collaboration at the heart of the response.”

“As we work to demonstrate that it is possible to end homelessness, #Homewards is also about changing the narrative, improving the understanding of what it means to be homeless,” William wrote in an Instagram post. (Credit: Instagram)

What is the Prince of Wales’ Homewards Project?

Homewards is a five-year project launched by Prince William in 2023, intended to bring together a range of people and organisations to develop bespoke homelessness solutions.

The project is focused on six flagship locations Sheffield, Northern Ireland, Aberdeen, Lambeth, Newport and Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole.

“Homewards aims to give people across the UK hope that homelessness can be prevented by showing them the progress we can make when we collaborate,” Prince William writes on the Homewards website.

“It’s a big task, but I firmly believe that by working together it is possible to make homelessness rare, brief and unrepeated, and I am very much looking forward to working with our six locations to make our ambition a reality.”
