In 2014 we enabled 38 young people to gain an Arts Award with 24 Bronze, 12 Silver and 2 Gold. With a dedicated staff member we were able to increase the number of accreditations we facilitate and, we believe, improve the quality of the journeys the young people take through the accreditation. Arts Awards were delivered through our own projects, in partnership with other local organisations and schools, and through one-to-one support. This year also saw the start of our engagement with the Jack Petchey Award.

We know that being involved with the arts as a participant or as a viewer can have a profound effect on people's lives; whether it is running a film project for young people at risk of exclusion or giving adults with learning difficulties the chance to create stories and perform in front of an audience, we know that life is made more enjoyable and rewarding when we spend time doing something creative with a group of friends, old and new.If you believe the arts are as important as we do, please consider making a small donation. We appreciate your continued support!
