Citizenship and independent living – March 2017


Partners for Inclusion and In Control Scotland, Citizen Network group members based in Scotland, invite you to the launch of the film The Man at the Gate.

Date: Tuesday 14 March

Time: 3pm – 6pm

Address: Tramway, 25 Albert Drive, Glasgow G41 2PE

The Man at the Gate is a film about Clive. Clive spent 52 years living in hospital before moving to his own home for the last 2 years of his life. After his passing, an article in the local Ayrshire newspapers went viral after his life story was described as a ‘tragedy’.

This film shows that although Clive faced adversity, his life was no tragedy.

As a sentinel figure to the people of Ayrshire he touched the lives of thousands.

Pete Richmond, CEO of Partners for Inclusion who commissioned the film, said:

“To those that knew Clive well he brought joy and for those that didn’t know him, through this film, Clive gives us the gift of how to hold on to one’s dignity.”

Three further films will be shown portraying the lives of Scott, John William and James.

Aileen Campbell, MSP and Minister for Public Health and Sport, will be in attendance to deliver the opening speech and welcome at 3pm.

Food and refreshments will be provided.

Partners for Inclusion and In Control Scotland look forward to seeing you!
