Lancaster University/Save the Children Flooding film

We are currently working with researchers from Lancaster University & Save the Children on a film about the effects of flooding on children in Staines and South Ferriby, Humberside.

The voices of children are sadly lacking in flood recovery and resilience planning in England at the moment. This project is designed to show on film the voices and ideas of children and young people who have directly experienced flooding in Staines and South Ferriby into the debate. Short films revealing these voices will soon be available on the Lancaster University & Save the Children websites.

"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."
