Ann Coffey MP at the screening of the film with the young stars, Access All Areas Music Projects Ltd. and staff from Stockport Homes.
Stockport MP Ann Coffey met the stars of the ‘Safe at Home’ film at a special screening.
The film, produced by 10 young people, has been a huge success, with over 400 views so far on You Tube. It was created to raise awareness of cyber bullying and is being promoted widely to help protect other young people.
Ann Coffey MP said: “I am very pleased that Stockport Homes is supporting this work with young people in Adswood and Bridgehall. They have made a fantastic short film showing the pressures young people face from online bullying and the threat of sexual grooming online. Young people themselves are best at getting this message across to their peers, which is why I do hope the film can be shown in the high schools in Stockport."
Rebecca McAvoy, Customer Involvement Officer at Stockport Homes added: “The project started as a means to give young people something to do in the school holidays, offering them an opportunity to tackle a sensitive issue and gain new skills. We never expected the film to gain so much interest, but I am so glad it has because the young people deserve recognition for their hard work”.
The project was delivered by Stockport Homes in partnership with Michelle Scanlan from Access All Areas Music Projects Ltd. at Adswood Youth Centre.
The film can be viewed on Stockport Homes’ You Tube Channel.
