Inclusion Programmes

Wac Arts offers a range of inclusive performing arts and media opportunities for young people with additional educational needs and disabilities. We offer a varied programme with a wide range of activities from inspiring artwork and recording live music to swinging and movement with aerials equipment.

Young people develop skills, work creatively, build confidence and, most importantly, have fun!

Holiday and After School Projects

An inclusive initiative for young people with learning disabilities.

We encourage students to take their first steps in the arts by giving them access to activities throughout the week and during school holidays.

Dance, music, art, sport, drama, vocals and more!

Oasis Residentials

Three special outdoor residential trips over the summer period!

Young people with even high levels of special needs and disabilities enjoy a range of fantastic accessible outdoor activities with Oasis whilst also developing independent living skills including shopping, cooking and dining with their friends.

Sailing, grass sledging, high ropes, power boating, climbing walls, zipwire, jet skiing and more!

“I was very withdrawn in school and was losing the will to care. I have no idea where I’d be now without Wac Arts; I certainly wouldn’t have done well enough in school to get into college.”
Wonder Wac Arts Student

“The whole atmosphere inspired him to progress in such a positive way, being able to express himself through drama classes and workshops. He also learnt how to play the saxophone. Wonder Wac Arts has been such a lifeline for my son and me.”
