Our Projects

Our passion for having a positive impact on the lives of society’s most disadvantaged and vulnerable people is the driving force behind everything we do. We design and deliver projects that enable people who are excluded through disability, disadvantage, ill-health, imprisonment, poverty or social isolation to take part in high quality creative arts experiences. 

Creative:connection

Our programme bringing together disabled and non-disabled young people across the UK to create art collaboratively. The programme helps to break down barriers and provide an environment in which new skills can be developed and understanding shared.

ArtsAdventures

Our national music, storytelling, art and dance programme with young patients in hospitals, hospices and respite centres takes the focus away from young patients’ illness, injury or disability. It helps them to cope with anxiety and stress, provides a distraction from their medical procedures and supports the development of independence and renewed confidence.
