At the heart of GLYPT’s work, and central to its ethos and vision, is a commitment to supporting the most vulnerable in society, and empowering these groups to be able to access, and enjoy the arts. GLYPT works with vulnerable and marginalised groups of young people across its programme of work, whilst also delivering very specific and targeted programmes designed at engaging these young people through supportive workshops.
“Many of the children have behaviour and or learning difficulties and so the experience of putting themselves in someone else’s shoes and the opportunity to succeed in a non-academic setting was very valuable and rewarding for them .”
“Everybody, including ESL pupils were able to take part in the experience”
“It’s widened the children’s experiences and given them various learning environments where they can show what they are able to do”
“I have found everyone extremely supportive in accepting Looked After children and a child with Autism.”
“Many quieter children who would choose to be in the background grew in confidence and came to the front of the performance”
