Make Children's Lives Sparkle with Spectrum

Spectrum Community Arts Ltd is a not-for-profit organisation which provides performing arts workshops for people with disabilities and additional needs. We run a weekly dance and performing arts sessions and performing arts day camps in the school half- terms. 

Our aim is to enable participants to develop their self-esteem and self-expression through dance, drama and singing. It also provides respite and an additional support network for the parents / carers, both greatly appreciated 

Why we need your help

We believe the performing arts should be made accessible to EVERYONE! In order to that we want to keep participant numbers low in sessions (to help those with both sensory needs and anxiety),  the use of sensory props and to keep the club prices to a minimum! 
However, we do have a lot of costs; volunteers uniforms, training and DBS checks, hall hire, insurance, marketing, music license and admin fees. 

The support you could give us through your donations would mean that we could provide more props, costumes and sensory equipment, maintain the sessions that we currently run and provide training for all of our volunteers. Most importantly your donations allows us to keep classes affordable and accessible to our participants. 

The wonderful thing about spectrum is seeing the children's reactions to the classes and watching them grow in confidence;
"It's my dance club and I love dancing with Jade. I feel happy! I love the shaky egg song." - Oliver age 7

These classes aren't just for the children it provides an environment where parents / carers feel supported and can see the benefits of performance arts on their children. 

"Being at Spectrum has boosted Amber's confidence and she has enjoyed making friends. Part of her syndrome is memory so dancing and learning routines is helping and she tells me all the time "she loves it"

So when you make your donation to us, a whole host of the community will be grateful because you are helping us provide a space for those with disabilities and additional needs to freely be themselves, grow in self-esteem and to SHINE!

Thank You
