Become a volunteer reporter and help NHS celebrate its 70th anniversary!

Date published: 03/10/2017

In 2018, the NHS celebrates its 70th anniversary. To help share its past, and reflect on its present and future,poster
People’s Voice Media are looking to capture people’s stories about the NHS and put them together into a short film.

Working with the University of Manchester and Bridgend Association of Voluntary Organisations, People’s Voice Media are going to train young people (aged 14 – 25) as Community Reporters who will help them to gather these stories and edit them into the film.

Community Reporting is a storytelling movement that supports people to tell their own stories and use digital tools to share them with others. Using video recording techniques, the Community Reporters will
capture stories about the role of the NHS in their own lives and the lives of their friends, family, colleagues, teachers, neighbours and other community members.

They will then work with People’s Voice Media to identify the key messages from the stories and put them together into a short film that will be used as part of an online archive, an exhibition and at community events
