  • Circus Tricks! Resource – our Circus Inspired Music and Drama project, which includes a series of Animated Videos and a supporting Participatory Activity Pack.
  • Create + Connect – brings together lots of ideas and resources to use while DIY and other artists with learning disabilities are staying safe at home during the Coronavirus outbreak.
  • Following Patient 36 Resources Here we have brought together our Following Patient 36 Digital Story and supporting Resource Pack. We are hoping that schools, colleges and other organisations will use these resources to explore issues relating to disability.
