Lucy’s in Lockdown

Lucy is like many other children in the world right now: in quarantine with her family.

Her hair is blue, but this time she knows why.

This FREE eBook is designed to help children realise they’re not alone in the current conditions with Covid-19, to help them understand it’s temporary and to help them express how they’re feeling.

It’s “okay, sometimes, to have a blue day.”

Poverty: Our hidden shame?

To explore the impact of poverty in local communities, Glasgow City HSCP South Health Improvement Team, Plantation Productions, The Gal Gael Trust and Oxfam Scotland worked in partnership with the young people at Create Crew to deliver a youth-led participatory action research project. The result of the project was a youth-led documentary film “Poverty: Our Hidden Shame? which was short-listed at BAFTA for the AHRC Inspiration Award 2016.

To support the film a resource pack has since been developed by adapting sessions from the Health Issues in the Community training programme. The new resource encourages learners to explore further some of the issues raised in the film such as: what is poverty, who’s in poverty, beliefs about poverty, poverty and understanding inequality by using participative exercises, group discussions and digital approaches.
