Social care DVD wins National Training Award

A DVD drama commissioned as a training resource for health and social care professionals has won a National Training Award.

The Lost Child has already won a Skills for Care Training Accolade 2005, was highly commended at the Health & Social Care Awards 2005, nominated in the mental health category of the Community Care Awards 2005 and received a 4-star review in the April 2005 issue of Community Care Magazine.

Produced and distributed by Buzzword Films, The Lost Child looks at the life of a child growing up in a family where there is parental mental illness. The story is told through Tina, 16, who shares her thoughts and feelings about her understanding of the problems of her parents and the variety of health and social care professionals she encounters.

According to Buzzword, the resource is now being used across the country in professional training programmes and by universities and colleges on a range of courses.

The Lost Child was originally commissioned by Lancashire County Council Area Child Protection Committee as part of its training programme for health and social care professionals.

Lyn Gornall of Lancashire County Council said: "By challenging perceptions and promoting service collaboration, The Lost Child has proved to be invaluable in complementing the introduction and implementation of a multi-agency protocol."
