LAC Respect (2011) is a set of 4 short films created by the Chatback crew with BHM, aimed at teachers and addresses the stigma and stereotypical misconception of looked after children, who have experienced trauma, and how this affects their education and social functioning.
‘Experts’ such as educational and clinical psychologists, a social worker and a foster carer explain why LAC react and behave the way they do and suggest to teachers how they can better support them. The 4 drama based films which in one include none other than Mr Weasley from Harry Potter! was worked on with BHM and was launched in July at The Virtual Head Teachers’ National Conference at the NEC.
