Situation

Young people we work with, who are not in education, employment or training (NEET), face numerous barriers to engaging with conventional routes to education & employment. Many lack the confidence, social networks or communication skills to make the most of their opportunities, especially in the current, tough, economic times. Being NEET is proven to have a serious & detrimental impact on the life-chances of young people including; long-term wage-scarring, heightened levels of stress & depression

Solution

Bubble’s artistic programme is designed to connect with and bring together all sections of our community, requiring us to deliberately target the “harder-to-reach” people behind these statistics. With them we aim to increase access to the arts; help to reduce isolation; promote positive, healthy, involvement and; tolerant, cohesive and creative communities.
