About My Family Creates
The videos and downloadable activity packs feature creative writing, dance, creative and physical movement, sensory drama and wellbeing activities – delivered by industry experts, Salma Zaman and Nisha Lall.
The Being Me Activity Pack and Greedy Gertie Activity Pack are available to download here and the videos will be hosted on the HLF YouTube channel, and then made available to SEND schools, organisations and networks.
My Family Creates will help to fill a gap in provision for SEND families, many of whom have been shielding or limiting outside contact due to the Covid-19 outbreak. The aim is to improve confidence, self-esteem and wellbeing, and to reduce isolation for participants, while encouraging families to try new creative activities in the familiar setting of their own homes and to bond over shared experiences.
