A short film to raise awareness of young carers

Hi, we're seeking completion funding for a sensitive short film we shot in January 2022 called 'Charlie's Freedom' about an underprivileged, academically bright teenage girl who cares for her disabled Mum following a major stroke.

There are estimated to be at least 376,000 young adult carers in the UK aged 16–25 according to census figures. Many young people find early adulthood difficult, and with the responsibilities that caring brings, this makes it even tougher.

We are keen for this film to highlight one young carer’s struggles and the radical steps her Mum is prepared to take to ensure her daughter has the freedom to complete her education.

We have three acclaimed actresses starring in the film and a Bafta award-winning director, all of whom were keen to be a part of the film.

The Script has already won six global awards and with a strong cast and crew onboard we are hopeful that it will enjoy a global reach. The money raised will afford us an Editor; Music; Foley; VFX to complete the film ready for screenings.

Many thanks for reading about our project.
