Part One:

-Equibuddy is a registered charity that practices gymnastics on horseback. Equestrian vaulting, as it’s more commonly known, is a relatively new sport that involves the use of specially trained horses. Equibuddy trains these horses so that young people, including those with additional needs, can benefit from getting involved in this exciting activity that caters for those of all skill levels.

-OCDAction is the largest national charity that supports those suffering from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). Raising awareness of the disorder amongst the general public as well as striving to secure a better deal for those with OCD, this organisation has recently finalised a three-year development plan to help maintain and increase it’s support services across the country. This feature is an introduction to OCD, providing some guidance for those seeking advice.

Part Two:

-Anchor House is an award winning East-London based hostel and life skills centre for single homeless people. They help to support the homeless and vulnerable in turning their lives around by addressing the root cause of issues through training,rehabilitation and education. This film, presented by Anchor House Patron Julie Etchingham, shows how this fantastic organisation helps those facing the challenges involved in beating homelessness.

-The One World Media Awards reward the most outstanding media coverage of the wider world and vital development issues. 2012 marked the ceremonies 24th year, which took place on 8th May at Kings Place, London — once again chaired by renowned news anchor Jon Snow.
