Autumn Term 2018 Start Date:  Thursday 20th September 

Weekly sessions take place every Thursday from 1 – 3pm at Langworthy Cornerstone in Salford. Workshops are planned and co-run by members of DIY’s Friday Group.

Sessions are free and everyone is welcome. It doesn’t matter if you’ve never done drama before. You can come, join in, have fun and laughter and make new friends. It helps boost your confidence and put a smile on your face. Buds can also help you to become a better actor and learn new skills. We also sometimes put on shows.

DIY courses for adults

DIY runs a range of free courses for adults with learning disabilities from Salford. Past courses have ranged from drama and performance skills, to sound and voice and volunteering. Courses are supported by Salford Community Learning Trust.
