My Favourite Book by Melissa Woodburn, Participant in The Lowry's 2014 Literacy Project
In support of The Lowry's Literacy Project with young families in Salford
Being a young parent can be hard. Often unable to continue their education, they can feel stereotyped and judged, and struggle with confidence as a result. Without support, young parents can find it difficult to explore the world of books with their children.
Help The Lowry work with young parents in Salford to build confidence and encourage reading as a family through storytelling, music and visual arts, leading to the creation and publication of their own children's storybook.

Invisible or Ignored - A documentary made by Young Carers in Salford and The Lowry
This time last year The Lowry's Community and Education team were working hard to develop a film in partnership with Salford Young Carers called We're Not Different, We Just Do Different Things starring the young people alongside Maxine Peake. The film was a great success as the young people presented it at The House of Lords and in many school, youth and education settings across Salford to raise awareness of issues faced by Young Carers in School.
This year we have partnered up again to develop another short film, this time as a documentary. This documentary Invisible or Ignored is the result of many discussions with young carers in Salford about how they feel they are invisible or ignored by health professionals who provide healthcare for the people they care for.
Nearly 40% of young people Salford Young Carers service works with are Primary carers, yet they feel they are excluded from care planning, unacknowledged for the role they have. They also feel they have insufficient information about the health condition the person they are caring for is suffering from.
The group of young carers who have made this film hope that it will begin to address some of those issues by describing their experiences. In the film we re-enact situations from the young people's experiences in health settings as well as interview health professionals themselves about their awareness of young carers.
We sent teams of young reporters to interview nurses at Hope Hospital and Meadowbrook Mental Health Unit as well as a GP at his surgery in Irlam, who all gave us first person accounts of their experience with young carers and how the health system may or may not support them in the best ways possible.
The film previewed at The Lowry in October 2013 and received a great response from families, friends of the young people as well as professional's working in the Health Sector and at Salford University.
A copy of the film will be sent not only to every young carer in the city but also to every GP's surgery as well as being used to train Student Nurses at The University of Salford.
