Situation

We are trying to empower those who are marginalised in society, hard-to-reach or at the risk of exclusion. Our young people live in some of the most deprived wards in the country: • 3640 children in Greenwich & 15% of Lewisham young people have mental health disorders; 6000 have emotional and behavioural difficulties. 50% higher than national average. • 64% of our current participants are in the top 25% most deprived areas of UK • Both boroughs have above-average rates of looked after Children

Solution

Young people will work with arts tutors and therapists towards a shared goal, solving creative problems to create theatre. We will build confidence and self-esteem in children & young people, and give them the ability to work cooperatively. Sessions are designed specifically for our participants. We structure sessions at appropriate pace and adjust activities to enable young people to build skills and achieve a little more each week in a safe and supportive environment.
