Testimonies Kate Cheshire, Youth Worker, Bromley Youth Service, on Bromley In Love The group of young women really flourished during these sessions. They opened their imaginations and increased in confidence and bonded better as a group. There were many of them who had not participated in any drama or performance before & it was a massive achievement for them to perform in front of an audience for the final show. The project helped to break down barriers between the young and old & challenge thinking & stereotypes. The relationship has made a huge difference to many young people that we work with. Sian Spencer Little, Play Specialist at PRUH, on Plastercast Masterclass Princess Royal University Hospital- Children’s Ward receives monthly visits from Creative Learning Storytellers Sometimes in groups of children and their parents- other times in one to one work with children. Sessions are interactive with voices and acting, and the games and art activities which allow the children an opportunity to explore characters, create their own stories and act them out. Positive outcomes are children learning in a fun way, a sense of wellbeing, more relaxed and confident children and a positive recovery process.
