A two-part documentary has been announced by Channel 4 to mark a major moment in the lives of a unique group of young people.
Home Free (w/t) follows a group of young people with learning disabilities as they leave home and move into supported living apartments.
Living independently for the first the time, the new housemates will take a major leap in their lives with extraordinary access from the families.
The observational documentary promises joy, laughter, new friendships, blossoming relationships and even tears and heartache.
"We feel incredibly lucky that we have been able to follow these young people as they begin their exciting new lives,” said Emily Jones, Channel 4 Commissioning Editor.
“This series is a moving account of the challenges faced by those for whom independence is no guarantee. But it is also a joyful reminder of how brilliant and fun life can be when you are young, among friends, and starting out on your own."
The series will be produced by Primal for Channel 4.
Primal’s Head of Factual Vicky Hamburger commented: “Home Free is an extraordinary celebration of life and I hope we can learn so much from the fantastic housemates featured in these films.”
