A new documentary entitled “Hear Us Now” featuring the stories of young adults with intellectual disabilities leading normal lives received its first showing in Killarney recently. The documentary, featuring participants involved in programmes with both Kerry Parents & Friends and St. John Of God Kerry Services, gives viewers an insight into the daily lives of the participants as well as highlighting the challenges they and their families face.

The message the documentary is aiming to communicate is that people with intellectual disabilities are important and should be listened to. It also aims to raise awareness and generate support from the wider community on real social inclusion.

The documentary was made with support from SKDP through the SCIAP programme and Kerry ETB.
