Every young person should have the chance to shine whatever they are facing in their lives. Whatever Makes You Happy has been designed to be a fun and supportive group for young people who have emotional, behavioral difficulties, or special educational needs. There are four groups: Whatever Youth Theatre Lewisham, Whatever Youth Theatre Greenwich, SHOUT (SEN) and Reach Theatre Company (SEN).
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.
“It’s taught me that you can be creative, and that people aren’t going to laugh at you and they’ll be supportive.”
“This group helps me make friends because we play games and laugh”
“My confidence has grown a lot in the last couple of months and being in this group is partly a reason for it”
“The Peer Motivators made the atmosphere fun and encouraged people.”
