Film Competition

This past year has taken its toll on frontline workers and in a bid to help people and our communities recuperate,  the Suffolk and North East Essex Integrated Care System (SNEE ICS) has launched the ‘How do we heal‘ campaign’. 
Organisations and individuals are being encouraged to send in one to two minute short videos focussed on the question,  ‘How do we help everyone heal’  Films can use any means including smartphones and be as creative and as original as possible to convey this powerful message. 
Entries are particular welcome from people from BAME or LGBTQ+ communities, people with learning disabilities, mental health, obesity, sensory or physical disabilities, carers or what it is like to live in an area cut off from services.
There are prizes for the best films which will be awarded at an Online Awards Ceremony in May 2021.  More information can be found here:   Equalities Film Competition – Suffolk & North East Essex Integrated Care System (
You can contribute to the conversation in other ways too.  For example 

You can share your thinking about how do we heal in a variety of ways including:

  • send an email direct to HERE
  • enter your response online HERE
  • participate in one or more one-hour community conversations each exploring the question from a different perspective – details to follow HERE
  • participate in our campaign around the essential question relating to health equality: How do we help EVERYONE to heal? HERE
