Each summer we deliver a week long summer programme giving young people from Speakerbox the opportunity to create a play of their own.
We have delivered bespoke projects with young people involved in the care system to explore mental health, their relationships with social workers and strategic changes. Our pilot programme with Speakerbox resulted in a film used in social worker training.
Training for Foster Carers and Social Care Professionals
We have developed a short play, ‘Care‘ from case studies which is performed as a provocation as part of a foster carer training. Foster carers are invited to interact with the characters and discuss the social and emotional wellbeing of the characters presented in the play.
Bubble Young Theatre Makers performed Care at Southwark Council’s Social Work Matter conference in 2019.
This will be shared again at a Frontline training day.
