Superabled


DanceSyndrome Founder Jen Blackwell started the charity because she was unable to find dance leadership training which was suitable for someone with a learning disability. Being a part of DanceSyndrome has been life-changing for Jen, and many other people with learning disabilities, giving them a voice to be heard and an opportunity to follow their dreams.

 

Filmmaker Natalie Kennedy spent several weeks following Jen as she went about her daily activities. She interviewed Jen and her friends and family about the impact of being involved with the charity and the result is a touching and heartfelt story about love, friendship and inclusion.

 

The film highlights the long term value that small charities like DanceSyndrome can add to the lives of the people that they work with and considers what the impact would be of taking that away. It also addresses the day to day challenges of running a small charity, such as the competition for major funding and the difficulty of raising money through fundraising when there are so many worthy charities needing help.

 

Superabled is an emotive and thought-provoking film that gives real insight into the valuable work of small charities.
