Students film dementia guide
STUDENTS have been asked to produce a film to provide support for people with dementia.
The group of students at South Gloucestershire and Stroud College (SGS) has been asked to create the five-minute film for South Gloucestershire Council to ease anxiety among people with dementia and inform them about help available.
The students, aged 15 to 20, are studying for a level one diploma in creative media at the college's Wise Campus in Stoke Gifford.
Many of those taking the course have experienced personal difficulties, leading to exclusion from mainstream education, or have learning disabilities and behavioural difficulties.

For the project the students filmed at the Cambrian Green Day Centre, a complex in Yate which supports people with dementia.
Once complete, the film will be included on the council's website and screened to centre users in March.
Steve Mazillius, media lecturer at the college, said: "I'd like to express my thanks to the staff and service users at the Cambrian Green Day Centre for the warm support given to myself and my students. The experience was of real value to the students.
"These young people often find everyday encounters with adults very challenging, which made the reception we had very welcome."
