Parents star in ACE Centre TV appearance
The work of the ACE Centre will be featured on television later this month. The experiences of the parents of young people with communication difficulties will be highlighted as part of the Untold Stories series, hosted by Channel 4 newsreader Krishnan Guru-Murthy. The programme will be shown on the Community Channel at 6.30pm on Wednesday 13 April.
The message of the programme is that it's not just the remarkable young people who are the stars in the journey to communication. The parents, carers and supporters all play a vital role in supporting the children towards communication and independence.
The film has been produced by the Media Trust, a charity which works with other charities to enhance their communications and enable communities to find their voice. Each year, it selects 25 charities to take part in a film-making scheme, with professional filmmakers producing short promotional films for them.
Project manager Amanda Whittington said: âThe ACE Centre offers brilliant support and technology for children and families dealing with communication difficulties, and we are delighted to have helped voice their fantastic work. âWeâre very proud to be working with such worthwhile charities who are working tirelessly to improve the lives of young people.â.
