Do you care for or support a young person between the age of 8 and 17 who has learning difficulties/physical disabilities? Does the young person enjoy the theatre?

PossAbilities is a partially funded project in the Kirklees area and we are looking for young people who would like to be part of producing a play about discrimination related to their own experiences. The project looks at all elements of producing a play from learning how to write scripts, creating sets, casting roles and acting, once the play has been written by participants of the project.

Kirklees Success Centre are running the following courses in the summer term:

Phonics – gets a basic understanding of how first steps in reading is taught in school – great for parents who want to help their families, especially as children have lost so much school time.
