“You’ve got talents and skills other people just can’t see. Change that now and show them just how good you can be.”

Get Back Into The Groove

You’re young and you really want to do better in life. But sometimes things get in the way and you end up frustrated without knowing a way out. Start Youth Arts can help you learn new skills, change your perspective and grow in confidence.

If you’re feeling excluded from society or having trouble at school, it can seem like everyone just wants to shut you away. The Start Youth Arts programme – aimed at young people between the ages of 5-18 – can help you get back on the right track.

Through our series of artistic workshops, you’ll pick up new life skills and be guided back into mainstream education, vocational training or employment.

Put simply, you’ll leave with more opportunities than when you started, which will help you feel better about yourself and the world around you. And when you’re armed with that kind of confidence, who knows what you’ll be capable of achieving!

All our workshops are given in a supportive and friendly atmosphere, and geared towards your specific needs.

So, if you’re feeling vulnerable – whether through disability, learning difficulties or social exclusion – get in touch to talk about how we can help you improve your life. If you already have a support worker, we’d be happy to talk to them too.
