Media Education are an independent training and engagement provider who aim to champion the experiences, priorities, views and opinions of those who might struggle to find a voice in society, through the use of creative filmmaking and audio projects, as well as video consultation.
Since our outset in 1989, Media Education’s small team have grown and developed expertise in working sensitively and supportively with people with a wide range of abilities and from a wide range of backgrounds.
We run our own video and radio projects, focussed on empowerment and advocacy, aiming to build resilient communities who engage in constructive dialogue with service providers and policy makers. To learn more about our projects, click here.
We also partner directly with other organisations to develop bespoke projects. If you already have a budget or would like to explore ways we could find funding together, get in touch!
