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 -
