Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service (SFRS) who were finalists for the Best Supportive Employer Award, at the 2016 Dyslexia Awards, have released a film to encourage and raise dyslexia awareness amongst employees.
The film, just under 20 minuets in length, features a handful of SFRS’s dyslexic employees; who were all eager to offer their support to this project, which will be used to help promote the support that SFRS offer their employees.
The film also features Dyslexia Assessor Cathy Huckfield, myself Elizabeth Wilkinson and Laura Kavanagh-Jones who was in charge of the film project and worked in the Equality & Diversity department at the time of making the film.
I was totally honoured to be asked to be the consultant on this project, and to have been involved too; Laura worked really hard to make this project a success and everyone involved is pleased with the result.
Special thanks go to Connor Grady & Thomas Dickinson who turned the initial plan into the final film!
