         from William Davidl


5th October 2016

 This is the first major change to The Halfling Project website since the project became Halfling  nearly 2 years ago.

It reflects the changes being made to William David work - changes set to make things clearer and simpler.

I admit that in many ways The Halfling Project has developed in a way not planned on inception. 

It became known as a photo work, where in fact photography was a small part of it's remit.

It has become known for working with actors and performers - where in fact it is open to all - subject to the basic criteria.

But ok times changes and lessons learned this website will centre less on the photographic aspect - and more on it's central point of childhood and bringing awareness of autism  and allied conditions -   special needs and support.

Please remember much of this work with an individual is personal and confidential - so what you see here is more often than not shot and commissioned for purpose.

Also the project is not just for those who have traditional special needs - it's for any child/young adult within broadly speaking the "education age group of 5 up to leaving school/university.

This is a male based project - because the specialised support required for girls needs to be seen from the female perspective, and is a sector I have little experience in.

That said - girls often are involved as part of the family involvement.

Photography is still a major part of The Halfling Project, but the work has been split according to it's aim & much is now covered by WildVen/Act4ward.

This will be explained in more detail later.



                                         Welcome to Halfpenny Halfling - The Halfling Project

The Halfling Project is designed to promote and build up understanding of those children who are just a little different, with conditions often invisible to the public, other parents and children - teachers & support workers.
