Jessie and Jane

An Essex family navigating a complex care system, about a mum who strives to improve her daughter’s quality of life.

Connecting citizen experts and system designers, this film was one of a series for a programme of workshops run by ThePublicOffice and Essex County Council about health and social care for people with disabilities. Their personal narratives helped provoke a fresh impetus for change and system design solutions, bringing the lived experience of individuals into a conversation normally restricted to professional voices.

Made in collaboration with ThePublicOffice.
