SCTVawards- Best Campaign filmCarers Gloucestershire’s ’1 in 10? music video is based loosely on the 1981 UB40 hit single – it highlights the role of carers and that 1 in 10 of the UK adult population has an unpaid caring role. The video features Gloucestershire carers including several from Stroud. This is a re-edited version of the original video. It looks at the reality that behind the statistics – 1 in 10 of the UK adult population being likely to have an unpaid caring role – that this number is made up of individual carers. Everyone featured in the video is an unpaid Carer known to Carers Gloucestershire.

David Pearson of award-winning Arturi films and a judge for SCTV, said: “Very smart simple presentation that lifts a difficult to convey subject and invokes emotion and universality.”
