Project Update: Headstart 

02 May 2024

Our Headstart programmes goes from strength to strength. Last year we delivered four Art, two Drama and one Music course, and received excellent feedback.

The mum of a young person on the Drama course reported that she was thrilled to hear how he was making connections with the other young people, as where he was currently he had no friends. She said, “There is also a sense of purpose for M and a routine that he can sign up for. As M is autistic this is something he needs to make him feel secure.”

New tutor Josh Fowley is leading our music courses for 13–17 year olds at the MK Dons Brooklands Pavilion. This month we also begin an Art course for 13 -17 year olds and we will be scheduling a Drama course for 8 - 12 year olds.

In the summer we’ll be providing short holiday club combined dance/drama  courses and scheduling a summer Art course and a Music course for 8 – 12 year olds.

We are still accepting referrals for all our Headstart courses.

Our Headstart programme is kindly funded by the Big Lottery Community Fund. With thanks also to The MK Music Hub for supporting our music based adventures both in the community and at the Campbell Centre.
