CICC STIGMA FILM

Stigma DVDThe CiCC members are hoping to educate peers, professionals and the wider society about the stigma that can be associated with being in care and challenge judgements, stereotypes and labels.

They carried out their own research and asked other children in care whether they have ever felt stigmatised. Their research resulted in the production of a short film and a paper based on their findings.
