Citizens Eye

In December 2013, Barnardos joined forces with Derby's major cultural institutions to launch the Plus One initiative. Set up in order to give children in care the opportunity to experience live performance, film and creative workshops in the city, the scheme has seen a number of successes since it was launched.

Citizens' Eye met up with the key people involved in the initiative from Derby Theatre, D├ęda, Derby LIVE and QUAD to discuss the origins of the Plus One scheme and how it is shaping up for the future. The team also spoke to Derby County's Shaun Barker and representatives of Barnados and heard their perspectives on the scheme and why it is such a valuable enterprise for children in care living in Derby.
