Theatre Peckham Awarded Young Londoners Fund Grant

We are proud to announce we have been awarded a 3-year grant from the Mayor of London’s £45 million Young Londoners Fund to support young people at Theatre Peckham.

The aim of the project is to inspire young people to participate in local community activities and to improve confidence, mental well-being, resilience and communication skills, by allowing participants to explore themes and struggles through the safety net of drama. It will enable children and young people to fulfil their potential, and take part in positive activities in their community.

For this project we will be working with local primary and secondary schools, ARCO Academy and Southwark Youth Offending Team.
