CHARLIE HOUSE Charlie House - Hands on care in the age of isolation, how we embraced tech to fill a seemingly impossible gap

As a charity that supports children with complex disabilities and life limiting conditions by bringing people together for hands on learning through inclusive activities and shared experiences, the restrictions on movement introduced in response to COVID and additional shielding restrictions for our service users could have forced us to abandon our mission. In this short session we will explain how we took our traditionally hands on service model and moved it online to great effect.

2016 Logo 1 Absafe - presents a short video to show the possible impact of the misuse of WhatsApp…. you decide, who is the clown?

Absafe spoke to a group of young people who were worried about the affect WhatsApp groups was having on their mental wellbeing, and the potential influence this could have on how people saw them, and how they saw themselves. Absafe worked with three young people who wrote, filmed and edited a short video to show how this might look, and to determine who the real clown was.
