The Children's Society - Henley Festivals Official Charity Partner

I’ve worked with Image Group in my role at the Children’s Society for a couple of years now. Adele and the team have always looked after us so well

The Children's Society - Henley Festivals Official Charity Partner

Highlighting the daily challenges of young carers...

The Children's Society are a national charity that run local projects for children and young people. As Henley Festival's official charity partner 2016, they had the opportunity to showcase the amazing care and highlight the struggle of young carers from across the country.

In Summer 2016, The Image Group were brought in to help deliver the exhibition through the use of rich photographic boards showcasing some of the carers and their stories. To enable the young children to post drawings and photos, an exhibition wall was also created to allow them to post their feelings and reflections on the exhibition.

For Image Group, account manager Adele Lumsdon said:

"We have worked with The Children’s society on their signage requirements for a number of years so it was nice to be involved in part of such an amazing project.

Carly had the initial idea of having a large 3 metre wide cube in the centre of the room and we had to overcome how it would work logistically for a short term event in a busy Marquee.

The final solution needed to be safe as it was being used as an interactive system whilst still having enough display area for The Children's Society to brand the graphic panels. The modular system we specified worked well as it could be broken down and stored away and used at other events.

Thanks to our great relationship with the people at The Children's Society we have really enjoyed delivering this event and we look forward to more in the future."

For The Children's Society, Carly Clementson had this to say:

“The Children’s Society are Henley Festival’s 2016 official charity partner. They are working in partnership to bring inspiration and vital support to thousands of children who care for their parents and family members.

Our exciting new partnership is incredibly important in raising awareness of the challenges facing young carers, and 2016’s special outdoor version of our Hidden exhibition (captured by award winning photographer Max Alexander) is featured at the festival. The portraits and accompanying stories illuminate the reality for many young carers, showing the hidden lives and hardships, as well as hopes and resilience, faced by hundreds of thousands of young carers across the country.

Image Group coordinated the printing of our event space, which consisted of: a bespoke outdoor cube which was designed to work as a community wall – children and young people attached colouring, reflections on the exhibition and photos from a photobooth, as well as an A board and feather flags to direct traffic around the space.

I’ve worked with Image Group in my role at the Children’s Society for a couple of years now. Adele and the team have always looked after us so well. From rebrands, to random last minute jobs they have always been up to the task. As always with projects, little things crop up that no-one could’ve envisaged but they are always super quick to help and fix things – I don’t know where I’d be without them! Thanks for all your on-going support. Carly and the team at The Children’s Society.”
