London Bubble would like to express our thanks to Paul Hamlyn Foundation for emergency support of the Speech Bubbles programme at this very difficult time. Speech Bubbles is a small group drama intervention for young children that supports their communication development. This face to face creative work which takes place in schools was shut down at very short notice back in March at the beginning of Lockdown.

The Foundations support has enabled us to:
Now that we are thinking about what schools and schooling might look like from September onwards the support from the Foundation is providing us with the capacity to engage in debate about the ‘Recovery Curriculum’ and to plan to return to schools with creative activity that will help us all to #BuildBackBetter.
