FINALIST 2023

Rural Media
Hold Out A Hand

Rural Media

Rural Media works directly with communities, individuals and groups to create issue-driven digital content, media and education resources that impart skills and influence societal change.

The two films entered this year are:

 - Hold Out A Hand: a powerful short film that we hope will stimulate conversations about mental health and suicide within the Gypsy and Traveller community and also encourage people to reach out to engage with mental health and suicide prevention support services. Hold out a Hand was commissioned by Worcestershire County Council Public Health for Travellers Times.

 - Who Am I Anymore? was created in partnership with West Mercia Women's Aid raising awareness that domestic abuse can effect anyone at any time.
