Speaking at the event, Marissa Carter said, “it was an honour to host the LauraLynn Oscars on behalf of these incredible children and their families. They’ve all worked so hard over the past few weeks screenwriting, producing and acting, of course, and have created some brilliant short films. It’s fantastic that we can give them a true red carpet experience.”

Working with families and siblings is a key area of support at LauraLynn. As part of the ongoing support for families, LauraLynn’s multidisciplinary team includes a music therapist, play specialist and psychologist. A core part of the team’s activity is creating engaging memory making activities for the children and their families.
