Havering Council hosted their first film premiere on 6 March 2018 at Premiere Cinema, Romford showcasing a recent documentary produced and edited by children in care.

The film followed the journey of two teenagers who have been supported by children’s services.

Since October 2017, a group of young people participated in comprehensive film training to create and produce the documentary.

One of our young people involved, Tyler, 17 said: 

“Being part of producing a documentary has enabled me to express my experiences of being in care and how it has helped me develop and grow as a young person”. I have also picked up lifelong skills, learning how to edit and operate a professional camera, which I was unable to do before”.
