The Children's Society
A series of short films commissioned by The Children's Society and reversioned for Nottinghamshire County Council and Nottingham City Council giving a voice to children of adults who misuse drugs or alcohol.
These films were devised with children and young people, and used by Children's Services, Schols, Hospitals and conferences for training, advocacy and educational purposes.
The artwork and scenes were drawn and scripted through a series of workshops with the children and young people in order to give them a chance to communicate with people who may benefit from knowing more of their experiences while still protecting their identity.
