Other notes

We cater for young people with complex needs/learning difficulties. Our programme is varied, often using different locations.g. Whitworth Art Gallery, Salford Children's Holiday centre.

We use different spaces, introducing our young people to these spaces, through their art work, as an audience and/or as performers.We encourage inclusive activities and are developing an inclusive movement and dance group.

We facilitate decision-making, empowerment and independence using the arts, with much of our work emphasising meaning and expression.

Our sessions are relaxed and fun, emphasising a stress free environment.

We believe in making connections and have links, using digital online, with several other groups.

We offer online movement and art sessions, for those who have difficulty in attending our face to face sessions.


Costs vary according to the activity we have organised.
