This five-year project, funded by The National Lottery Community Fund, will give our children a voice to tell the professionals how to do it correctly by creating training videos for professionals from all fields to be disseminated nationwide that will see it from a child/young person perspective.
This project is open to all Addup children and young people. The children will learn new skills including: interviewing, presenting to professionals, creating videos, performing and directing. We designed this project for the children to be able to tell doctors, teachers and other professionals “This is not the right way to do it for us, do it a different way and you will get a better result from us”.
How many of you come to us about how you battle to get the right support for your child? About teachers… Not understanding your child? Intimidating you? Excluding your child because they don’t know how to cope with him/her? This project was designed to change this, to help them understand that shouting at a child does not get the result, that taking away their playtime does not get the result, that isolating them does not get the result.
As the filming part of this project has been completed, the children will be working on life skills and, if they wish, doing homework. If you would like further information or wish to discuss the project, please call the office.
