Young Carers Project

The Beginning

Our young Carers project, which is being delivered in partnership with Barnardo’s NI and Triple Vision Productions, is now under way. This project will run over the next three-years and is funded through BBC Children in Need. We are going to make six, short, arts based films with Young Carers from across Northern Ireland. We met some of the young people who will be involved in making the first film on Monday 30th October. Weekly workshop will now take place leading up to two days of filming out on location in December. All very exciting.

That’s a wrap

We had a fantastic time working with this wonderful group of young people! Together, with partner organisations Barnardo’s NI and Triplevision Productions, we spent six weeks devising & producing a film to help influence and challenge perceptions of young carers and raise better understanding. The film was screened in February to an audience of family and friends and will be made available soon for wider viewing. This marks the completion of the first of six dance and film projects we’ll deliver over the next three years. Thank you to BBC Children in Need for making this possible.
