Mates Helping Mates is a non-profit organisation created by Grant Richards and Alicia Wright to encourage and empower people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness to change and improve their lives by connecting them with services and providing basic needs and support.
Mates Helping Mates hold events to connect people who need services, raise awareness in the community and raise funds to keep providing those basic needs and reduce the need for people to have to struggle to get them.
Lucid Living Pictures volunteered their time to film and edit this video to promote future BBQ's to help the homeless.
If you would like to help by donating, spreading the word or simply coming along to one of the BBQ's to spend some time talking to the homeless and making them feel they are part of the community please visit facebook.com/mateshelpingmates for more information.

Lucid Living Pictures is also currently working on a documentary about Grant Richards (AKA Grant The Polite Guy) about how he went from having nothing and being homeless, to now having a job, a house, a wife and is now running these events to help those in need. You can see more and follow the progress of this film at facebook.com/grantthepoliteguy
Special thanks to Gabriel Kaszab for the additional footage, Grant Richards who took the time to talk to us on the day and Tahlia Gorring & Reg Gorring who helped out with this clip!
