Cumbria's Promise

Our latest documentary - commissioned by Cumbria Children's Services about the local authority parenting pledge to looked after children.

We completed the film in September 2011 and it has now been launched officially and released for general use by Cumbria Childrens Services this November.

Thanks to everyone who took part in the making of this film - young people, staff and elected members. 

We'd also like to thank all the young people who who took part in the West Coast Pledge project which produced so much material that inspired Cumbria's Promise, some of which we have featured in this film.

"With the young people having a history of being in care there is an awful lot they miss out on in their own communities – I’ve seen them shine here, they have produced really deep work"
