Stepping Stones Creative

We are an organisation for young people aged 10 to 25 years old, with additional needs. We use the creative arts in supporting our members in their personal, social and expressive development. Emphasising a relaxed, safe and enjoyable environment.

Based in Irlam and Cadishead meeting on Saturday mornings, we also deliver projects across the city, often collaborative i.e.inclusive movement project with Salford University Dance Department, poet Mike Garry, and others.

We are interested in developing 'youth voice', with this year running several successful workshops led by Julian Boal.

We are entering into an exciting collaboration with Salford Children's Holiday Camp, where we will be exploring how we can use their space and location to deliver wonderful creative activities.

We offer online, as well as face to face activities.

As we are a non-profit organisation we try to make our activities as cost accessible as possible, with most being free.

Other notes

We cater for young people with complex needs/learning difficulties.

Our programme is varied, often using different locations e.g. Whitworth Art Gallery, Salford Children's Holiday Centre, etc.

We use different spaces, introducing our young people to these spaces, through their creativity, as an audience and/or as performers.

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 with other groups, enabling different ways of inclusion

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