A 12-part film project, which provides a glimpse into the everyday lives of Wiltshire people, will be premiering its latest film this month on how people cope with life after having a stroke.

A number of stroke survivors in the county spoke to the filmmakers as part of the latest Wiltshire Voices project which aims to reach out to people who do not, or cannot give their views and opinions in traditional ways.

The project team has been out to talk to people and the conversations have been captured on film.

The 30-minute films are the stories, views and opinions of a wide range of different groups from army wives, live-aboard boaters, unemployed youngsters and Polish migrant workers.

The short films will be available on DVD and online, and will be used in group situations to stimulate discussion and action by schools, service providers, organisations and local decision makers.

The latest film, put together by BAFTA award winning filmmakers True Vision, will be launched today (Tuesday) at Melksham Assembly Hall when there will be a showing of the film followed by a workshop to discuss the issues raised and how to progress.

Area boards throughout Wiltshire will be using the films to better inform decision-making.

Chris Williams, portfolio holder for area boards said: "This is the latest film to be launched and we are grateful to these people who have come forward and talked to us about their lives.

"Often the people who need the most help are the ones who don't get heard and this is a powerful way of hearing what these people have to say.

"We have simply asked people to tell their own stories in their own words, in their own places."

The stroke survivors involved in the project will be available and there will be group discussion and action planning around the issues that emerge.
