BACKGROUND

Since May of 1995, Angus Carers has, under one name or another, provided crucial support, advice and companionship to the region's unpaid carers, both young and old.

From humble beginnings as the Angus Caring for Carers’ Network - with just 25 volunteers supporting 17 carers - The Angus Carers Centre, as it is now called, has flourished over the past 20 years and now provides a variety of vital services to nearly 2000 adult carers and over 200 young carers.

To tie in with the launch of their brand new website we were tasked with producing a promotional film that demonstrated the difference they make to the lives of unpaid carers on a daily basis and encouraged those in need to reach out.

CONCEPT

If you’ve worked with us before, you will have no doubt heard us talk about the human stories at the centre of every project. The stories that inject humanity into the four walls of an organisation such as Angus Carers. The stories that don't just talk about success, they demonstrate it. Ann’s story is a perfect example of this.

After out initial brainstorms with the team we realised, what better way to shout about the great work accomplished at the Angus Carers Centre than to tell the story of a carer who has been there, got the t-shirt, weathered the ups and downs and come out the other side sporting an incredibly infectious smile! Ann’s Story is a fantastic example of what can be achieved with the right support, tools and guidance and, we hope, will not only help spread the good word of the Angus Carers Centre, but will serve as a strong reminder to all those struggling in similar situations that help is available, they’re not alone, and it will get better.
