Route1 Advocacy & Independent Visitors service in Somerset have collaborated with students at Bridgwater & Taunton College creative arts department,  IVs and care experienced children, to produce a high-quality, compelling animation to promote IV volunteering opportunities.

This is a great example of partnership working across the community to raise awareness of the IV role, enhance the voice of care experienced children and young people, offer a creative activity for IVs and children to do together and enrich the portfolios of a future generation of animators!
