About The Charity

They are a vibrant, independent, registered charity providing an arts centre and forest school for adults with learning disabilities.

Since 1984 they have offered a safe, creative, and enriching environment where the arts are used as a tool to bring people together and tackle social exclusion. They develop the skills and potential of their students while improving their happiness, health and wellbeing. They also deliver much needed respite to families and carers.

They provide a range of creative workshops in:

  • Woodwork
  • Ceramics
  • Textiles
  • Print
  • Mixed media
  • Drama Music

They are open Monday to Friday, 9am to 3pm, for 50 weeks a year. They arrange regular trips to theatres, museums and exhibitions to explore art and culture further.

In 2020 they launched Rowan Rangers, their new forest school which enables students to be creative and connect with nature.

They have a strong social enterprise ethos and accept large and small commissions from individuals and organisations. They also produce artworks and other items, such as their popular finger labyrinths, to sell online and at exhibitions and events.

It costs over £600,000 a year to run the charity. They receive some income in student fees but rely on fundraising to cover the majority of their costs.

They believe that people living with a disability should have the same choice, quality of life, opportunities, and aspirations as others and with your support they shall continue to make that possible.

The deadline for applications is 7 November 2023.
