Targeted Projects

Tangled Feet design bespoke projects to work with specific groups of young people

In these targeted projects we develop a performance or creative process with an emphasis on collaboration, trust and fun. The project might tackle a particular creative theme of interest to the group, but often also addresses a specific set of needs, issues or challenges that the group is facing. .

Some examples of groups we've recently worked with on targeted projects:

Young people with autism (primary and secondary school age)

Those effected by autism (siblings, parents and carers)

Adults with learning difficulties

Adults with mental health issues

Recently arrived Refugees

Adults and Children in the Ayslum System 

Young people not in education or employment

Young carers

Young people with multiple and profound learning difficulties

Looked-after children

What it's like to work with us

“Tangled Feet have always shown immense sensitivity to, and knowledge of, the diverse groups of young people that we work with in Croydon. Beyond this, they have created some fantastic, creative pieces of theatre with these groups of young people, by challenging them creatively and intellectually to give them and audiences an experience to remember.”- Jessica Hodge, Integrated Youth Service Manager, Croydon Council. -
“Tangled Feet's unique workshop style, in which they invite the participants to work alongside them as part of an ensemble, engages and enthuses even the more tricky young people, giving them real ownership of the work produced.”- Matt Gallop, BBC Blast -
“A massive THANK YOU to your fantastic team... All the feedback I had from the young people, staff and volunteers was extremely positive. They all had a lot of fun, learnt new skills and had a good insight of what drama is. On behalf of all of us, thank you very much again and good luck with your performance.”- Valeria Ragni, British Red Cross, Vulnerable Groups Co-ordinator -

It's official: Tangled Feet is Fantastic for Families!

By Kat Joyce   We are very honoured to have been recognised with a prize for Best Family-Friendly Workplace Initiative' by the Fantastic for Families campaign.   Over the years the number of people in the ensemble with kids has grown to the point that there are now more children than adults in the TF tribe. So really, we had to adapt our working lives or we would just not have been able to carry on making work. The upshot of that is that, motivated by our long-standing commitments to working together, we've found loads of creative ways to accommodate people's parenting status.   The theatre industry can be horribly unfriendly towards parents and parents-to-be. I know of women who work at major buildings who privately report a culture where taking time out for motherhood marks you clearly as someone with no desire to succeed. I know actors who have been dropped by their agents during maternity leave because 'it doesn't seem like you want to return to work after your baby'. Others who've had to desperately scrabble around for childcare when production schedules are changed at the last minute. In an industry where there are always more creatives than there are jobs, and people often feel very precarious and disposable, many try to behave as if they don't have children, hiding their families out of sight. This is a real shame, as it means that talent and experience haemorrhage out of our industry as people (mainly women) find family lives incompatible with continuing to work.
