THIS year’s festival of care launched on Friday to kick off a packed programme of events.

A flag was raised at Lerwick Town Hall to mark the event, which is in its third year and aims to shine a light on care experienced residents.

A programme for the festival, which includes booking links, can be found here.

The opening film for the festival was also released, and it can be viewed below.
