D/deaf Youth Theatre
Supporting the Youth Theatre- how does it work?
You can make a gift to the Youth Theatre which could then be boosted by additional gifts from Aviva staff when the campaign opens to them next week, making your money go even further.
Selected Aviva staff have been given free money by Aviva to spend on the Community Fund projects!
Support us with the money you might otherwise spend on Christmas cards, a gingerbread latte or a new tree bauble!
There are lots of lovely rewards up for grabs too, from your name framed in BSL, to T shirts, to Deaf Awareness training for up to 20 people (useful for companies and charities).
It’s easy- all you have to do it click and support!
The youth theatre is funded in the main part by BBC Children in Need with additional support from The Laura Ashley Foundation. Your support will pay for travel bursaries, one to one support for specific young people and additional activity in the holidays.
The Youth Theatre will meet every Saturday from January 11th 2020 (term time). It will be lead in BSL and English (by Steph and Anna) and there will be plenty of volunteers around to support participants to get the most out of the sessions.
All staff and volunteers will have Child Protection training and will be DBS checked.
If you’d like to volunteer, get in touch in the same way. You won’t need to be available every Saturday, as we’ll be operating a rota system.
Our Aviva campaign is now LIVE!
We’ve had our first pledge of £250 (thanks Pat Dawson!) and today you too can support young D/deaf and Hard of Hearing people in South Wales to grow in confidence, learn new skills, make friends and participate in the artistic life of Wales.
