'Powerful' film tells stories of people's bereavement in Stratford

Laura Kearns 27th Nov, 2017

A ‘POWERFUL’ film telling the experiences of young people dealing with bereavement is set to help others know they are not alone.

Users of the Shakespeare Hospice’s Young People’s service created the documentary with funding from the National Lottery.

And after filming wrapped, the film was showcased at Stratford Picturehouse.

Allison Hinds from Children In Need attended the premiere.

She said: “This is a very powerful film. The experiences were told beautifully through the young people. This film will be a very good tool to help other bereaved young people seek help and know that they are not alone.”

The young people felt that by sharing their story they could help others in the same situation,

Alison Burford, Lead Family Practitioner at The Shakespeare Hospice said: “We are so proud of what the young people involved have achieved, they have come together and shared their experiences, exposing their vulnerabilities and supporting each other throughout the whole process. They have all been very brave.”

The film will now be showcased at local schools.
