Care-experienced people in South Ayrshire have made a film which will be screened at an open-air fun day at Rozelle Park later this week.

The project, “Film, Family and Friend” was created as part of Champions for Change is designed to share with others their life experiences.

Champions for Change was created to give young people in South Ayrshire, who are care-experienced, a voice and to use their experience to create positive change.

During lockdown the Champions for Change team worked with some talented local young people to develop a series of personal monologues.

This was later developed into the short film which will be shown at the event, which is on Saturday, September 18 from 2pm until 4pm. An initial screening of the film took place at the Gaiety Theatre for all those involved with the film production, which was well received.

The team were keen to help share the stories of care experienced young people in South Ayrshire with the wider community.

Dawn Parker, Corporate Parenting Lead Officer said: “Recent lockdowns have been tough for everyone in our community. Our Champions for Change team was keen to ensure we were able to keep in contact with our care experienced young people.”

The Champions Board have a reputation for creating incredible films, we decided to create a new feature celebrating the theme Film, Family and Friends.”

The event will also celebrate the work which has been done so far to develop South Ayrshire’s new Parenting Promise.
