Our amazing team of regulars and part-time volunteers are committed to helping others.
Founding Director, Ben has worked with adults with learning disabilities and/or autism for over 10 years, and previously managed a music festival!
Our four Directors have a combined 20+ years of supporting people in many different areas from SEND schools and personal caring duties, to day services and supported living homes.
Less than 2% of adults with learning disabilities in County Durham are in paid employment, much lower than the national average! We believe with the right support people can have equal access to employment and reach their potential.
Our focus is on events, arts and creative roles, but being creative can cover a whole range of things!
We support people to work at festivals such as BBC Radio 1's Big Weekend in Middlesbrough and to design and build art installations for music festivals and events.
Our Vision is to championing the potential in people and creativity.
Our mission is to create opportunities that remove barriers to employment for young adults with learning disabilities, encourage creativity and social responsibility, add value to the community and champion people’s potential.
We also aim to support events and festivals to improve their social responsibility by providing more opportunities for adults with learning disabilities and autism.
