Situation

Problems of isolation from their peers due to their inability to participate in 'normal' activities. Excluded from many typical children & youth activities due to the level of physical or learning disability. Stigmatised and bullied by other children because they are 'different' and can't communicate the same as others.

Solution

We will organise an annual programme of activity partly based from our own bespoke Arts Centre, for the children & young people that will enable them to take part in fun and educational things with others who experience the same problems, creating positive developments for their lives socially, emotionally, & educationally. Offering inclusive, supportive & stimulating activity to lead to a more fulfilling and whole life.
