Carer Support is hosting a special screening of the documentary "On Richard's Side" as a training opportunity for service providers. Filmed over three decades, On Richard’s Side is the third in a trilogy of films which chart the life-story of Richard, a young man with a complex disability since birth. The film provides poignant insights into his parents’ quest to establish a quality life for their son and themselves.
Early bird ticket price available until 5pm, Tuesday 3 April.
35-year-old Richard has lived with a severe intellectual disability since birth, having relied on the care of his parents, Deirdre and Charlie, friends, family and support workers. A few years ago there was a major change in Richard's life and now his mother Deirdre is fiercely committed to finding answers to the questions: who will care for Richard in the future and what will happen to her son when she is no longer around? Wiseman's raw and intimate documentary reveals just what it means to care for someone who needs care for life.
Thirty years. One story. Time to care.
