We have just completed this six minute short, "The Flood Project" - commissioned by Lancaster University and Save The Children. The children who worked on this project have collaborated with the research team and Whitewood & Fleming to produce a six minute film about their experiences and what needs to be done to improve recovery for people who are flooded in the future. The film highlights the need for the voices of young people to be included in Disaster Planning, we hope it helps make a difference. You can watch it online on the Lancaster Uni website, just click the link on the next page.
"Bringing together looked after children as a group in this way is unique. It allows them to use the arts explore issues related to being in care in a totally new way, with quite extraordinary results."
