On Wednesday 2nd March fellow Solihull Chamber members CMA Video worked together with the Family Care Trust to create a series of promotional videos showcasing our organisation and the range of care and support services that we provide.
The team from CMA Video looked at our aims and objectives for the videos and after some discussion it was agreed that the best approach would be to produce three short videos focusing on our different service areas.
The first short video is an overview video introducing the Family Care Trust and the scope of care and support provided, the second is a feature on the Newlands Bishop Farm facility – a working farm that provides person-centred training for people with disabilities and the third, an overview of the day care, short break – respite and community support services that the Trust offers.
At Newlands Bishop Farm the project workers were filmed taking part in their various training sessions in the carpentry shop, working with the animals and working in the Farm café preparing the daily meals ready for serving at the lunchtime rush. In addition a group of older people from our Croftbrook Opportunity day centre were filmed while taking part in an enjoyable group activity playing skittle. Finally a community support reach out social get together was viewed in the café where a service user was taking part in a leisure activity along with a support worker as part of our community support service.
The videos have been designed to showcase the valuable work of the charity in Solihull and to highlight the variety of ways individuals and organisations can help whether that is a donation of time or money; we can use both!
It was a great day which everyone enjoyed by everyone involved. Thank you so much to Adam, Tom and Jack from CMA Video for all of their support.
Interviews were carried out with key stakeholders at the farm including Chief Executive, Phil Carpenter and farm manager Daniel Adams who have benefitted from employment at the farm and the services that are on offer.
