Sharing Action

Videos to share

Connecting people and ideas and action IS one of the ways Paradigm support ALL to learn and develop their ideas and practice!

As we travel the country and beyond we grab any opportunity we can to capture ideas and action on film. Simple films to share people’s voices. ALL people who have shared their ideas and stories here are very happy for you to use the films…in training, team meetings, with families. Wherever you think they will be useful!

Happy watching and sharing.
