We are delighted to welcome Lucy Anderson as our Fund Raising and Communications Intern.  She will be working alongside young carers for a period of 20 weeks to help us move smoothly into the 21st century media world!  Lucy's post has been part funded by the European Social Fund with match funding from the Scottish Government.  Our sincere thanks goes to these Funders and to HISEZ who are coordinating the management of her post.

Held Hand Roots

Held Hand Roots

During April 2013, 8 of our members worked alongside Iain Mitchell - Director, Achiltibue Films; Joelle Taylor - Poet; and Vlad - Cinematographer on a film project. The end result was 'Held Hand Roots' and the premiere was held on 5th September at Aros, Portree. Different services within the area and further afield were invited to this screening and the response was extremely positive with a lot of praise for all those involved in the project. The film and accompanying poetry book will be used as a training tool for professionals.
