Studio POW’s approach to filmmaking is mirrored by its belief in its social responsibilities. Just as we support and encourage young people to grow their careers in the creative art of filmmaking, so we support charities and social enterprises who offer young people and adults the opportunity to grow, improve, recover and in some cases start again.
Below are three institutions that we are proud to support and associate ourselves with.
CHILD BEREAVEMENT UK
Child Bereavement UK supports families and educates professionals when a baby or child of any age dies or is dying, or when a child is facing bereavement. Every year the charity train more than 8,000 professionals, helping them to better understand and meet the needs of grieving families.
The charities vision is and mission is for all families to have the support they need to rebuild their lives when a child grieves or when a child dies.
Their mission is to ensure the accessibility of high-quality child bereavement support and information to all families and professionals by increasing the charities reach and plugging the gaps that exist in bereavement support and training across the country and embedding standards in the sector.
The College is established as a registered charity with the express purpose of the advancement of education. Although fee-paying ‘Fram’ offers a range of means-tested bursaries and scholarships to enable children from less well-off backgrounds to gain from a Framlingham education, the College collaborates with a wide range of local state schools, offering access to facilities and sharing of staff and senior students. The local community is also able to use many of its facilities. ‘Fram’ is known for encouraging pupils to participate in every possible activity and offers a uniquely rounded education.
The Horticulture Industry Scheme
CIC – THIS – is a social enterprise.
THIS is about giving offenders and ex-offenders training and employment opportunities. The support they offer their workforce includes housing advice, training, education in literacy and numeracy (where necessary), substance misuse, financial difficulties and family relationships. They refer their workforce to the most appropriate agency to deliver any specialised advice and support that is needed.
THIS improves individuals opportunities to work, their contribution to the community and demonstrate to the workforce, their families and society, that past mistakes do not have to seal future failures. Their vision is that ex-offenders will participate and contribute fully in society.
