Certitude has teamed up with four other social care providers – Camphill Village Trust, Choice Support, MacIntyre and United Response – to launch an online initiative to share the voices and creativity of people with learning disabilities, autism and mental health support needs during lockdown.
Our Voices shares a range of experiences by documenting the ways people have coped, reflected upon and adapted to the lockdown with creativity, humour and humility. Through a website and a YouTube channel, the initiative provides a platform for people to tell their stories and get their voices heard. On the website, people can watch video diaries and view creative projects produced during lockdown and beyond.
Aisling Duffy, Certitude CEO says: “The impact of Covid-19 has affected every part of our lives; our mental and physical health, everyday activities and human interactions. Over the last three months, it’s been incredible to see how people have coped. We’ve witnessed people making positive changes, thriving under lockdown and seeking opportunities to learn and grow. Truly awe-inspiring.”
Our Voices features people the charities support, family members and support staff. It launches on 6th July 2020 and new content will continue to be added in the coming weeks and months.
