Youth Circus Community Bursaries

We believe in the power of circus to transform the lives of some of the most vulnerable youth in our society. Our youth circus bursaries will target 8 – 14 year olds from Cardiff and its wider areas. We specifically target the Communities First areas, due to their high level of deprivation.

Across Wales, the wards that face highest levels of deprivation are designated as Communities First areas. These communities face multiple challenges such as mental health issues, anxiety, high levels of obesity, heart disease and diabetes along with poverty of opportunity. Children who face these issues struggle to engage with their peers, finding school isolating.


We devised our youth circus bursary programme to open up access to the highest quality circus provision, through our youth circus programme, to young people with additional needs, financial hardship and mental health issues such as autism, sensory process disorder, ADHD and anxiety. Our bursary programme offers them the opportunity to engage in a safe and inclusive environment where they can play, learn and develop the coping strategies they need to thrive in life.
