What we do - 360 degree Me
Our first video-based project, supported by National Lottery Community Fund, produced video CVs and personal support plans with young people (post-16) and adults with additional needs. Our clients included individuals with learning disabilities and / or autism, mental health issues and other health-related conditions.
We worked with participants to help them express themselves confidently in showing their skills, talents, hopes and experience to prospective employers. Our aim was to make the entire process as fun and enjoyable as possible!
The completed videos were featured in a Film Premiere hosted by our Film Star clients at the University of Lincoln, acting as project Ambassadors. This was an amazing event, which attracted 70-80 guests and stakeholders.
We worked with many different individuals and families as well as care, support, education and training providers throughout Lincolnshire. We were also delighted to gain European Union funding support through the Innovation Programme for Greater Lincolnshire to develop a research partnership with the University of Lincoln.
This enabled us to work with Dr Niko Kargas, Director of the University's Autism Research and Innovation Centre, who helped us to develop and evaluate our work.
