A Modern Apprentice working in the Children’s Hearings System has starred in a new film which was recently launched.
Sophie Henderson, age 18, scripted, starred in and co-directed the short film called “Give me a chance” which was made by the Fostering Network.
Sophie, who is currently a Modern Apprentice with the Information and Research Team at SCRA, is also a Young Champion with the Fostering Network. She and other Young Champions met with the Minister for Children and Early Years Mark McDonald at the film’s premier at the Scottish Parliament recently.
Sophie explained: “The film shows that being in foster care can give you a positive experience. It was quite fun being involved in making the film and I’m happy it will be shared with other people to help them understand what being in foster care can be like.”
