Trusts and Foundations

We use theatre to champion difference and demonstrate the strengths of a more inclusive world.

As well as our professional performances, we deliver a wide programme of Education and Training, participatory activities and outreach work in the community. We bring together children and young people from every walk of life – with a range of abilities, perspectives and personal experiences – to learn, share values, challenge labels and exceed expectations through an ethos of inclusivity. This is a place where everyone supports each other, in order to discover each individual’s true potential.

Trusts and foundations play a crucial role in supporting many areas of our work. With your support, we are able to:

  • Create entertaining and thought-provoking theatre and performance, that raises the profile and adoption of inclusive practice in the sector, demonstrating excellence without exclusion.
  • Provide weekly creative learning activities and performance opportunities for our inclusive membership groups as well as open access activities for our community.
  • Bring young people together from every walk of life to achieve accredited qualifications and reach their potential through our unique education programme.
  • Offer vocational training for young people, from all backgrounds, who want to develop their creative skills through our Young Creators programme.
  • Deliver outreach workshops and projects in schools and community settings, tackling social exclusion.
  • Open our doors to everyone, and make sure our performances, activities and our building are accessible to everyone.
