About Amanda Waring

Actress, Writer, Director, inspirational speaker and passionate campaigner for Elder Care

Amanda Waring is an actress, writer and director and has been a passionate campaigner for older people's rights for the past five years.

After witnessing the lack of compassionate and dignified care that her mother the actress Dame Dorothy Tutin experienced during her treatment for leukaemia, Amanda was determined to make a film that would highlight the need for respect for the elderly. Amanda sold her flat in order to make the award winning and powerfully emotional film ‘What do you See’, starring Virginia Mckenna. This has since been used in dignity trainings around the world.

In 2006 Amanda, with the greater London forum, held a conference for five hundred delegates looking at the importance of dignity and respect within care settings. Her film was debated by Martin Green, professor Norma Raynes and the nurse and broadcaster Claire Rayner. In 2009 she put on another awareness raising event at bafta where Baroness Julia Neuberger and Jackie Morris joined her as guest speakers.

Amanda has talked on many TV and Radio programmes about her campaign, including The Today Programme, Woman's Hour and BBC Breakfast and has given interviews to newspapers to ensure this very important topic gathers momentum to ensure a kinder and more compassionate future for us all.

In 2010, Amanda completed three more short films to complement ‘What Do You See?’ ‘Home’, which looks at transitions into care homes, ‘The Big Adventure’, which looks at end of life care and spirituality and ‘No Regrets’, which examines grief and loss.

Amanda has been taking many workshops around the UK since, exploring the themes of her latest films and her highly acclaimed training pack, which contains 24 new and additional films. She has been invited to speak around the world with her films, as an inspirational and motivational speaker and workshop leader about the care of the elderly and of the twenty conferences at which she has been the key note speaker, include the CSCI's annual conference.

In 2012 Amanda is to release her own CD comprised of words and music for the dying, as well as her book "The Heart of Care" through Souvenir Press.
