Breaking Barriers

Everybody has a voice, but not everybody is heard.

Working in Community Halls, Drop-in Centres, people's own homes and, once, even in a forest, Breaking Barriers aims to leave behind a legacy in each area where it operates. Key members of the community are identified and trained so that they can then help others whose voices are yet to be heard.

About Breaking Barriers

The Breaking Barriers project is part of a network of Digital Storytelling partners that the BBC developed across Wales between 2001-2008. Breaking Barriers offers people from all over Caerphilly County Borough the opportunity to share their stories with BBC audiences too. From one to one, to full-blown production workshops, local people from eight to eighty make short films about things that are important to them.
