How we've used the 2018 grant so far

The RYH grant from January has supported our work with 750 vulnerable children and young people over the past six months!

We’ve delivered more than 335 creative arts workshops, helping our participants form relationships, develop skills and build confidence from Cumbria to Essex.

Highlights included:

  • A Wealth of Stagesgave 56 primary school children the chance to visit the Bank of England Museum and devise a play exploring the world of finance, which they performed for Diane Abbott MP
  • painting and jewellery design with in-patients at an adolescent mental healthcare unit in South London
  • creative:connections brings children with and without disabilities together to create art and break down barriers.

Over the next six months, we will continue to bring the power of the creative arts to the children and young people who need it most. We’re particularly excited that we’ll be enabling some of our young carers to take part in the Lord Mayor’s Show in November – stay tuned!
