Filmanthropy is a community interest company that specialises in using the creative arts and media as a tool for social good. We focus on increasing media literacy and access to resources through facilitating participatory video creation and unique community-based workshops. We empower disenfranchised communities to create their own content; amplifying their voices and helping them to share and explore their experiences. This approach has won multiple awards for participants. We’ve collaborated with a number of organisations to do this work, from small local groups to internationally-recognised organisations, including: All England Lawn Tennis Club, Amnesty International, National Trust, Inclusion London, YMCA, Local Authorities and Voluntary Service Councils.

1. Action Plan

1. The National Dementia Declaration lists seven outcomes that the DAA are seeking to achieve for people with dementia and their carers. How would you describe your organisation’s role in delivering better outcomes for people with dementia and their carers?

Our mission is to use media as a tool for social good, so we will apply that to help enrich the lives of people living with dementia, working collaboratively with other organisations and services, and also ensuring that our own practices are inclusive and accessible to all those who are affected by dementia.

2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?

Most of our work is collaborative, so we will need to encourage all of those with whom we work to be dementia friendly, including with their spaces.
