This supportive drama programme is for vulnerable young people aged 8-14 who have or are at risk of developing mental health problems.

Working with professional artists and arts therapists, the groups offer a safe and supportive space where young people can gain confidence, find ways to express themselves, improve their social skills and make friends.

Safe Space is a creative catch up, offering a drop-in for members to chat, unwind and join in with arts activities. But the workshops are all about drama! Storytelling, drama games, improvisation, devising plays and developing characters, but most of all having fun!
