The Flood Project

We have just completed this short film for Lancaster University & Save The Children about the effects of flooding on children in Staines and South Ferriby, Humberside. The film highlights the need for the voices of young people to be included in Disaster Planning, we hope it helps make a difference.

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.
Children are often ignored in disaster related planning and policy development. Consequently this collaborative project between Lancaster University and Save the Children is researching children and young people’s experiences of the UK winter 2013/14 floods. The team used creative arts methods to understand the children’s experiences and communicate their ideas to policy. Our short film documents the project. 

You can see the The Flood Project film here on our website, or on the Lancaster Uni site here

Thanks to everyone involved in the project.
